Take a walk in the streets of any town in Gran Canaria and enjoy the many beautiful buildings and places. There are more sedate parks and places to discover, some right in the heart of Las Palmas, which is the bustling city of Gran Canaria and the most exciting city in all the Canary Islands.
 

Walk through the lovely parks in the island and soak up the nice atmosphere. Enjoy the marvellous nature surrounding the cities. There's an abundance of Spanish way of life here though, it's a city with almost 600 years of history and hasn't shrugged off much of that typically Spanish tradition. Relax on a street side cafe and watch the people passing by.

Gran Canaria is an island of festivities that continue throughout the year. There is not a town, village or country hamlet that does not celebrate its own special event, where nobody feels left out. It is precisely during these festivities when the innate hospitality and friendliness of the people of Gran Canaria become manifest.

These festivities also demonstrate the vitality, ambiguity and plurality of the elements and cultures in which the local population has been steeped for many centuries.

Below please find some of the greatest and most known parks and squares on Gran Canaria:

Parque de Santa Catalina

35007 Las Palmas


Photo Gallery

In the middle of Las Canteras in the west and the harbour in the east, you find this beautiful park. A lot of the festivities, events and concerts that take place in the city, is located in this park. The carnival (February/march), for example, has it's main stage here, and the park is full of people.

It's a good place to start your sightseeing of Las Palmas, as many tourist buses have their stops here,

In the park you can see a sculpture, placed there by the City, of an old woman feeding the animals. She was actually an old homeless woman living in the park, and her name was Lolita Pluma. Pluma means feather, and she was called like this because she always had plenty of feathers on her from the birds she was feeding.

In the streets around the park are many nice cafés, bars, restaurants and shops. Close to the Elder Museum of Science and Technology, the Parque de Santa Catalina is known for hosting many of the area's most notable carnivals and festivals.

Located next to La Luz and Las Palmas Ports, this park's wide central area is surrounded by the Science Museum, the Elder Building, a playarea for children and a modern tourist office.

Parque Doramas
(Pueblo Canario)
35005 Las Palmas


Photo Gallery

Parque Doramas is a beautiful park that lies in the district of Ciudad Jardin, in the middle of Vegueta and Las Canteras. The park is named after the guanche King Doramas, who fought against the Spanish for a long time, but in the end he was killed in Arucas.

After a day walking around in the city it is great to come here and relax. Sit down on one of the many benches, watch the water cascades and the statues, and explore the beautiful plants and flowers that you can find here.

Located in Parque Doramas is Pueblo Canario. This is a copy of a typical Canarian village. The Canarian painter Néstor de la Torre is the man behind this. Everything is artificial, but it is still a nice place to relax, buy souvenirs and local crafts, or look at traditional shows of dancing and singing.

A monument depicting aboriginal people tumbling over a precipice to escape capture symbolizes the resistance of the Guanche chief Doramas, after whom this park was named, against the Spanish invaders.

Doramas Park itself is a sub-tropical paradise in itself worth a visit. Cascading water features, abundant Canarian flora a terrace cafe and generally a world away from the surrounding city. In the centre of the park is THE hotel to be seen at, Hotel Santa Catalina. Dating back to the 1800s the original Canarian style of the building is quite spectacular and there's a nice terrace to sit out on for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
 

 

Gran Canaria is a great theme park itself as it has a large variety of leisure activities to offer the visitors. It has also developed some natural and artificial areas where it attractions and shows are put together just to entertain and in many cases to educate their visitors.

Although the island does not have large theme parks, places for leisure in Gran Canaria are noted for their variety, originality and a sense of being somehow linked to the surroundings and natural resources. Thus, you can find botanical gardens, zoos, water parks and those parks which are linked to the Canarian culture. You will also find scientific and amusement parks.

Beside the Parques mentioned we mustn't forget the Cactualdea Parque, Palmitos Parque and Botanic Garden, all of whom mentioned under Tour suggestions.

 

 

Best choice, before, during and after the holiday!
