Alamillo Park is a metropolitan park located between the town of Santiponce (Sevilla) and Seville, Spain. The park is scheduled to begin an expansion that will make it one of Spain's largest urban parks, reaching 120 hectares in the summer of 2013.
In 2009 the park opened to public. At the nursery Expo of 1992, the park became a wildlife reserve spanning an area of about 10 hectares. Consequently, a botanical collection of more than 100 different species, and a greenhouse were added.
Previously known as Alamillo, Alamillo Park was the focus of regional government. They obtained the park in celebration of the Universal Exposition of Seville. The park covers 85 acres of the northernmost area of Cartuja Island, an area between the old and new channels of the Guadalquivir river.
After completion, Alamillo Park will feature Mediterranean trees such as elm, pine, poplar and the endemic cork oak. It is known for the bitter orange fragrance that fills the spring air.
The park is developed around two lakes, Lake Maggiore and Minor Lake and is fully equipped with recreational, leisure and sporting facilities. The names describe the vegetation as well as its culinary uses.
An ecological tour of the park includes the mammals, amphibians, reptiles and waterfowl that inhabit the park.
A program of cultural activities called "Summertimes Alamillo" occupies the months of July and August. People of all ages can participate in performances, rides, theater and other activities,.

  • Admittedly, the park is less pretty (and much more distant) than the Maria Luisa Park but it is perfect for running along the Guadalquivir and then in the park itself, with all its paths. There are even public fountains, the Grail in hot weather!
