We have officially welcomed warm, sunny days that are better enjoyed with nice friends, fresh food and cold drinks in open, breezy spaces, such as parks. Sevilla is a great place to picnic in the park.
May 24th is European Day of Parks and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to promote the best parks in Seville. We have compiled a short list with concise descriptions, however we strongly recommend strolling around each park, as you will be amazed to discover every unique thing that they offer.
1. Parque del Alamillo
Born from Expo 1992, Parque del Alamillo is an authentic metropolitan park due to its great leisure, cultural and sporting activities. The combination of a vast green area, two lakes, a variety of birds and plant masses, and pedestrian paths makes it a favourite for both residents and visitors. We recommended you this in this post a while ago.
2. Parque de Maria Luisa
Parque de Maria Luisa is what we call “the green lung” of the city. This historical park is special for all its monuments, buildings, roundabouts, fountains and ponds. Within the park you will find the famous Plaza de España (which holds the Military Historical Museum) and the Plaza de América (which counts with the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions and the Archeological Museum), making it a must-visit when in Seville.
3. Parque de Miraflores
Parque de Miraflores represents the largest green area in the metropolitan area of Seville, known for its gentle hills and different levels, wide walks, extensive esplanades and diverse activities that take place in it.
4. Parque de Los Príncipes
Parque de Los Príncipes is a small gem in Seville. It was the first park to be built on the other side of the river and the first park to abandon the traditional gardening design of the time, featuring curvilinear paths and an irregular lagoon with a marked landscape cut.
