Parks and gardens

parqueThere exists a clear concern in Gijón with caring for and conserving its recreational zones, with creating ample spaces that are also welcoming at the same time, giving rise to an increase in the quality of life. We might say that we are talking about nature transplanted into the urban setting. Extensive areas of open spaces are to be found all over the town, with parks and gardens that cover a surface area of almost one and a half million square metres.

Such busy plazas in the town centre as those of San Miguel, San Agustín, Europa, Begoña, and more peaceful gardened areas, veritable green lungs, such as the Isabel La Católica Park, the "English" Park, the Pericones, the Rinconín or the new Cape San Lorenzo Park, distribute these leisure spaces around the town and its surroundings, opening up a wide range of possibilities of enjoyment for young and old, the people of Gijón and its visitors. To top it all, we must not fail to highlight the Botanical Garden of Gijón, in the countryside setting of Cabueñes.
