Best parks and gardens in Lisbon, Portugal

Parks and Green Spaces

The Grass is always greener in Lisbon. When the sun is out and the birds are singing, there is no better place than the Portuguese capital to spend a day outside. Below is a list of some of our favorite parks.


Jardím França Borges

This is one of the best small parks in Lisbon. The highlight being a 100 year old tree whose branches have grown out horizontally to shade the park. A playground, outdoor café, and kiosk make this place a park you should not miss. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch retirees playing heated games of Portugese bridge.

Praça Príncipe Real

Jardím Gulbenkian

Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, or just to lay in the grass and make out.  A large lake and streams run thoughout this park that sits between two museums. Coy fish, bamboo shrowded trails, and modern art make this a special place for a day out.

Avenida de Berna, 45A
Praça de Espanha

Miradouro de Santa Catarina

This is one of our favourite viewpoints. Being just a minute’s walk from Oasis, the place is perfect for lazy afternoons in good company. While it is small grassy knoll could hardly classify it as a park, when the sun is out this viewing point fills up with people of all ages and backgrounds who want to take in the suns rays, have a beer, and maybe break out their guitar.

Santa Catarina
Baixa Chiado Metro

 

Jardím da Estrela

With the majestic Basilica da Estrela in the background, this is a perfect place to take a book and enjoy the day among the trees and grass. Plenty of space for the kids to play and small enough to keep an eye on them. In the summer they have lots of live music, fairs and outdoor movie cycles.

Praça da Estrela
Open everyday 07h - 24h
FREE

 

Estufa Fria

Full of large and small plants, some exotic and some local, this place is perfect for an adventurous or romantic walk in the center of the city. After exploring the stone paths, small lakes and waterfalls, head up to the top of Parque Eduardo VII for a breathtaking view of downtown Lisbon and the river Tejo.

Parque Eduardo VII
Marques de Pompal

Open 09h - 17h

Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

Split-level viewing point near Bairro Alto. The top level is adorned with a fountain, lively café, and plenty of benches. The bottom level has a beautiful cut out lawn in typical imperial Lisbon style. Also a calming grotto with running water.  During the day, it’s a picture of calm and at night the café on the plaza plays audible but not loud electronic music.

Parque das Naçoes

In many parts of the world, former World Expo sites are laid to waste once the celebrations end and are monuments to bad city planning. Not in Lisbon. The site of the ’98 Expo is still bustling with people and remains a great place to get out and stretch your legs. Theres a climing wall, a bird refuge, many cafés, and other activities such as bike rentals, a train, and pedal-boat hire.

Parque Florestal de Monsanto

90 miles of walking and cycling trails and seveal playgrounds. This huge park hugs southern Lisbon with its green blanket of trees. The most popular site is the hilltop Parque Recreativo do Alto Serafina, an adveture park near the old Roman Aquaduct. It’s loaded with picnic areas, a children’s driving circuit, climing walls, boats, running track, and restaurants.
