Walking in Malaga: Parks and Gardens
When walking around Malaga every corner leaves unique impressions. Every walk along its beaches, its narrow streets, its wide avenues and, of course, its parks and gardens is distinctive.
It's on this latter category that we are focusing on in this blog. Malaga has a great variety of options to keep you out and about during your stay in the city, and the parks and gardens are a must-see for everyone.
There are places of enormous environmental wealth, like the Montes de Málaga Natural Park, the Guadalhorce River Mouth Natural Park, the La Concepción Botanical Gardens and Malaga Park.
Walking around the city centre you can also see the beauty of two spaces designed by the architect Guerrero Strachan: the Puerta Oscura Gardens, located on the southern slope of the Gibralfaro hill, and the Pedro Luis Alonso Gardens, on the eastern side of the Town Hall. In addition, these natural spaces form part of the exceptional garden complex close to Malaga Park, the Casita del Jardinero and the Palacio de la Aduana.
Bordered by two of Malaga's main avenues, Andalucía and Aurora, visitors will find themselves immersed in a large green space, the Picasso Gardens, inaugurated in 1981 to mark the centenary of the birth of the famous Malaga-born painter.
Beyond the beauty of these places, there are also parks that combine nature with fun, spaces where children will not only learn about plants, but will also have a great time. There are large green spaces with extensive play areas such as the Huelin Park, the Isla del Tesoro Park, the Litoral Park or the Cine Park.
Walking in Malaga through its parks and gardens is a perfect option for any visitor. Whether with friends, with your partner, or with the family, this is the perfect way to get to know the natural charms of the city on foot.
