You can’t really miss it: More than 200,000m2 of green area in the centre of the town make Parque La Paloma (Paloma Park) one of the largest and most spectacular parks on the Costa del Sol.
Equally ideal for a family day out or a quiet and relaxing walk in the company of a loved one, Paloma Park has become one of Benalmadena’s main attractions. All who visit are impressed by the parks vast green areas, as it is built in the middle of the town. Here’s a few of the main features:
- Specially laid out pathways which are ideal for leisurely strolls. I must warn you that some parts are a little steep and might not be ideal for all visitors. If you stick to the bottom part of the part (around the artificial lake) you wont have to deal with the steep walks.
- A large artificial lake is the centre point of the park. The lake is full of large fish – I think they are Karp – as well as turtles, ducks, swans and more…..
- Don’t be surprised by the large amount of wild animals running wild around the park: Peacocks, hens, chickens, rabbits – or was it a hare? Not sure but it was pretty big! – all run around the park, much to the delight of the little ones! There is also an area where you can see ostriches and mountain goats; although you’ll be happy to know that they are kept in a closed area!
