Parque Genovés, Cadiz
Parque Genoves gives a different view of the age of exploration. Many of the discoveries made by Spanish explorers were new plants. This garden showcases some of the plants found by these Spanish adventurers. This park is more open than the Alameda de Apodaca, with a wide path running up the center, but smaller paths will reveal some exciting discoveries.
Situated in the old centre of Cadiz near the Caleta beach, Parque Genoves is a delightful park, well maintained with trees cut into interesting shapes and plenty of water features. There are also quite a few cats that inhabit the gardens.
If you look at the other photos I have attached to this tip you will also see the cave feature which used to be part of a duck pond. Now there is no water and only a few duck like birds or geese, but you can still walk through the caves or even over them!
Adjoined to the park is the PEMAN which hosts music concerts in the summer.
All in all Parque Genoves is a great place to take a stroll and look at trees from all over the world, or sit and have a drink on a warm sunny day. There is also a Children's playground to keep the kids happy.
This little wonderful park is located aside the "Hotel Atlantico Parador", near the "La Caleta" Beach. Is a quiet place to refresh a bit from the summer heat and a nice place to sit at a terrace and have a beer...
This park is located on the eastern end of Cadiz and provides a nice, relaxing place to pass the time.
