O Festival Internacional de Jardins localiza-se em Ponte de Lima, na margem direita do rio Lima.

Tem uma área de cerca de 2,5 ha e organiza-se em quatro espaços: o estacionamento, a zona das piscinas e bar, a zona do parque de lazer e contemplação e a zona definida por Festival Internacional de Jardins, com 12 espaços distintos em forma e em área. Uma pérgula metálica coberta de trepadeiras estende-se ao longo deste espaço e separa a zona dos 12 canteiros do espaço de lazer e piscinas.

A ramada e as fruteiras que já existiam foram mantidas, proporcionando aos visitantes mais sombra, tornando este espaço ainda mais acolhedor a quem o visita.

O Festival Internacional de Jardins é um evento anual que abre as suas portas ao público na última sexta-feira do mês de Maio e encerra a 31 de Outubro. Entre Novembro e Maio, desmontam-se os jardins e prepara-se a nova edição com toda a azáfama da construção.

A selecção dos jardins é realizada por um Júri e ocorre após um concurso internacional. Qualquer pessoa pode concorrer independentemente da sua idade, profissão ou nacionalidade. O que é importante é a criatividade dos autores e a expressão de ideias inovadoras.

Obteve o prémio de Festival Internacional de Jardins do Ano de 2013 no âmbito do Prémio Garden Tourism Awards, intergrado no evento internacional “2013 North American Garden Tourism Conference”, em Toronto – Canadá. Nomeação para os Prémios Novo Norte na categoria Norte Criativo, iniciativa conjunta da Comissão de Coordenação da Região Norte e Jornal de Notícias.

It has an area of about 2,5 ha and is organized into four areas: the parking area, the pool and bar area, the recreation and contemplation zone and the area defined as the International Garden Festival with 12 distinct spaces in shape and area. A metal pergola, covered with clinging plants, extends throughout this space and separates the zone of 12 flowerbeds of leisure and pools.

Fruit plants, clinging plants and vines that existed were kept offering visitors more shade, making this space even more welcoming to those who visit.

  • This is a collection of small gardening arrangements, combining horticulture with art. Very pleasant walk for 1 euro, on the river Bank as well.  more »
  • If you are here when this is on, do visit. The park is divided up into small gardens and each organisation taking part works within the set theme with some really original results. Entry is cheap...  more »

  • This is an annual event, with contributions from all around the world, with the winner continuing to the next year. Some of these year participations were interesting (as gardens), others could more be classified as big art installations, than gardens. As I was with kids, it was time well spent. They were running all around the gardens and then went for the rest of the beautiful main garden, which includes labyrinths and a playground. Admission is a symbolic 1€ per adult and you gain the right to be a judge and vote on the best garden.
  • Lovely garden and nice walk. We have been there twice. My son enjoyed it a lot.
