Gibraltar Botanic Gardens (The Alameda), Gibraltar

4.3
#4 of 10 in Parks in Gibraltar
Created as a recreational area for off-duty British soldiers, Gibraltar Botanic Gardens (The Alameda) welcomes tourists and locals wishing to escape the heat or simply take a leisurely stroll. British Governor George Don commissioned a walking path around the main square in 1815, which was later expanded into a network of paths and terraced beds. In the first half of the 1990s, the neglected gardens underwent renovation, at which point a zoo was added to the site. Apart from the four howitzer cannons guarding the bronze bust of General Eliot, the gardens boast an open-air theater that can also serve as a wedding venue.
