Up to no fewer than 364 subtropical species can be found within the Park that originate from different places and through which we can discover the 5 continents through their beautiful flora while one of the best collections of palm trees that can be appreciated in a public space that can be used free of charge is highlighted.
One specimen from Europe can be found here: the Canary Islands dragon tree. You can enter a small forest of high Asian bamboo and walk alongside palm trees from Vietnam from the Mekong river, cycad revolute (king sago) from Japan, cycads circinalis (queen sago) from India or the caryota urens from Thailand.
A group of more than 30 Washingtonia robusta (also known as Mexican Fan Palms or Mexican Washingtonia), Argentinean jacarandas and avocado trees are from Central and South America while the romantic forest of Taxodium mucronatum or trees of the Sad Night when Hernán Cortés supposedly cried when he was expelled from Mexico originate from North America. We should mention the silk floss tree from the South of Brazil and the North of Uruguay, which are known locally as "palos borrachos" (literally drunken sticks) because of the peculiar way in which their trunks swell.
The aerial roots of the Ficus rubiginosa (also known as the rusty fig) also easily catches our attention. They come from the same area as the araucaria columnaris from New Caledonia (also known as Coral reef araucaria, Cook pine, New Caledonia pine, Cook araucaria, or columnar araucaria) and the Archontophoenix alexandrae (also known as the Alexander palm, Alexandra palm, King Alexander palm, King palm, Northern bangalow palm). To finish the visit we should mention the pandanus palms from Africa with its prop roots or the gigantic South African bird of paradise.
