Paloma Park Gets a Much-Needed Makeover

Paloma Park in Benalmadena

Feeding the ducks in Paloma Park

Paloma Park is one of Benalmadena’s most popular attractions – for locals and tourists alike.

Famous for its large lake, extensive gardens (including one consisting of cactus trees) and its diverse collection of animals, many of which roam freely through its grounds, Paloma Parkis a must-visit for all visitors to Benalmadena.

Those of you who have visited the park recently may have noticed that it was starting to look a little run down and in need of a little TLC. Thankfully, this iconic landmark is now set to receive a major face lift thanks to a special state fund of €200,000.

The improvement works began last Friday and will include the following:

  • Replacement of the main lake’s ‘feeder’ waterways
  • New Signage
  • New Street Lamps
  • New park benches
  • Installation of a new eco-friendly irrigation system that uses recycled water

The work is set to last several months but once finished will restore Paloma Park’s reputation as one of the Costa del Sol’s most beautiful public parks.

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

12 things to do at christmas in BenalmadenaAlthough not the high season here on the Costa del Sol, Christmas time offers lots of interesting things to keep the whole family entertained.

Our guests often ask us for recommendations on things to do at this time of year so we’ve decided to put together this list which includes activities and specific places you can visit during the holidays. Although the title of this post specifically states Benalmadena, you’ll find that out list wanders a little further down the Coast; that being said, all of these places are well connected by public transport. If you’re planning on visiting the Coast this Christmas I’m sure you’ll find something of interest on the list. Here goes…

#1 Visit one of the many tradition Christmas Markets on the Coast . You’ve got two nice markets here in Benalmadena but a trip to Malaga’s city centre is also highly recommended as they too have a popular market.

#2 Selwo Marina is open form the 22nd December 2012 to the 6th January 2013 and offers a great day out for all the family. With a spectacular Dolphin show and the only Penguinarium in Andalucia, it’s definitely one to put on your list.

#3 Time to head in to Málaga city centre and see the impressive Christmas light display. You can get the train from Arroyo de la Miel straight into the centre of Málaga; easy and cheap! Well worth a visit! Continue Reading →
