This park offers an array of outdoor activities and breathtaking views that make it one of the most popular attractions in Cascais.
The park was named after António Óscar Fragoso Carmona, who served as the President of Portugal from 1926 to 1951. The park was opened to the public on his birthday in 1932 as a tribute to him and his service to Portugal. Since then, it has become one of the most beloved parks in all of Europe due to its picturesque surroundings and abundance of recreational opportunities for visitors.
The park covers over 12 hectares (30 acres) with lush gardens, ponds, fountains, streams, and pathways winding throughout its grounds creating an idyllic setting for guests looking for some peaceful respite from their travels or day-to-day lives. Guests can explore this natural oasis by foot or rent bicycles at several points around the park, which allow them access to even more areas than walking alone would provide them with.
In addition to simply exploring Marechal Carmona Park’s beautiful scenery, there are also plenty of other activities available such as bird watching – thanks to its diverse range of wildlife – playing sports like soccer or basketball at various courts scattered within the grounds or taking part in any number of cultural events that take place here regularly including concerts, plays, and art exhibitions held throughout each year highlighting local talent from around Cascais area.
Overall, Marechal Carmona Park is an ideal destination for anyone looking for some tranquil time away while still having plenty of options when it comes to entertainment during their visit.
