Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Northern Portugal / Porto District / Porto / Parque da Cidade do Porto
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.

Parque da Cidade do Porto Reviews
Ωραίο πάρκο. Φαίνεται ότι οι περισσότεροι επισκέπτες ήταν ντόπιοι. Έχει λιμνούλες, άπλετο χώρο για πικ νικ, γήπεδα και εκδείκνυται για τις ζεστές μέρες. Ξεχνάς ότι βρίσκεσαι σε πόλη. more »Nice Park. It seems that most of the visitors were locals. It has ponds, plenty of picnic area, stadiums and ekdeiknytai for hot days. You forget you're in a city.
Imenso "bosque" localizado numa zona nobre da cidade com deslumbrantes passeios para caminhadas e vistas sobre o Atlantico. A visitar more »Immense "grove" located in a prime area of the city with stunning walks and views of the Atlantico. Visiting
Great Park once you get to the Central area. Don't be put off if you come by walking from the beach, as it gets better once you get close to the centre. It is host to various animals and birds as well as a nice lake. It is close to a mall and the beach, and bus services (500, 502...) present will bring you to and from the city centre.
A large natural looking park with 3 main lakes, geese, ducks, gulls, moorhens and coots. We also saw hens and roosters, jays, a little white egret and other birds. Lots of trees, small and tall. A pond with frogs. Clearly marked main paths, signposts and park maps. Plenty of space to sit, picnic, play ball games. At one end of the park, across the road is the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, a restaurant and café.
