I've been many times to the Azores as a kid and never visited this park. Amazing green space with places to sit and picnic. No mountain driving needed; easy drive from Ponta Delgada. The bird sanctuary did not have many exotic birds but it was still worth a visit.
Nice place to visit, bring friends and family and to spend time on pic-nic style. Wide areas with lots of green spaces. It is a big far from local access. You will need car to take you there.
A good garden, with some trails inside (marked), where you can practice some sports (running/walk). There are some attractions for kids, that's why it's recommended in Summer, for families. Go there, explore and be into the nature.
We were a bit disappointed with the place. We have seen nicer gardens. The lake is not even worth the name. I think you should only visit the place when you have lots and lots ofvtime on the island. It is poorly signposted too.
very peaceful and being with nature time, I went with my mother in law who is in a wheelchair, it was kind of difficult but we made it around with the wheelchair .
