Portugal's largest urban park, Parque da Cidade do Porto combines large manicured sections with sprawling natural areas. The park, the country's only public green area linked to the ocean, attracts morning joggers and cyclists, weekend picnickers, and impassioned surfers. Spanning more than 80 hectares (200 acres), the park grounds include sparkling lakes, verdant tree groves, blossoming hedges, and natural rock formations. Designed by renowned architect Sidonio Pardal, this green zone serves as a giant lung, providing Portugal's second-largest city with a breath of fresh air. Wild ducks, swans, and geese make their home here, along with more than 70 tree species and 40 plant species. Take a walk along the wide pathways and try to identify some of them.

  • An excellent park to walk, spend a good time in the shade to enjoy nature, great for children to play without worry.

  • The park is located between the Ceralbees Museum and the Annamona sculpture. The landscape also has architectural design, water pipes and water pavilions are located, and the theme of the park is like that. Interesting.

  • I love this place. I go there to chill and walk every time I am in Porto. Beautiful, calm and a lot of animals. Just amazing. Close to the Ocean so you can have a long and nice walk. Totally recommended.
  • A huge park with a wonderful flora, espexially beautiful trees. A magical place when covered with morning mist. Two steps (literally) from the ocean.
