Jardín de las Naciones – Nations Garden Park

Jardin de Las Naciones

 

Nations Garden (Jardín de las Naciones) is a lovely peaceful park, despite being in quite close proximity to a busy road. It is one of the largest green areas in the city of Torrevieja at nearly 40,000 square meters. It is kept very clean and tidy and the plants and trees are very well taken care of. It has lots of water features and a lake that is in the shape of the European continent, with little bridges that you can walk over and around.

The variety of birds, including ducks and peacocks add to the peacefulness of the park. It is a fun place to visit during the day, you can pack a picnic and spend quite a bit of time there, having a nice walk around, maybe a shot on one of the rental boats and kids will love playing in the children’s play area, where they will find a giant dragon slide where they can slide down the dragons back. There are plenty of seating and shaded areas.
