The Alameda park in Marbella is situated between the seafront and the old quarter, it’s a place where we’ll be able to go for a pleasant walk and relax while we enjoy a natural environment created since the 17th century, when they planted here the botanical species that we’ll find today. In the past, this park occupied around 20.000 squared metres and reached up to the walls of the castle, although unfortunately due to the expansion policies it gradually began to lose its extension, being in 1930 when the last reformation took place, when they asphalted the promenade.
In the centre of the park we’ll find a large ceramic fountain and benches to sit down and relax whilst enjoying this natural and lush environment, an ideal place to seek shade during the hot summer months.
The Alameda park is a symbol of Marbella and a very beloved place by its citizens where they gather to chat whilst enjoying the shade. It’s quite frequent to find organised events and street markets as it’s one of the most active places in the city.
In the surroundings of the park there are bars, shops, restaurants and horse carriages, one of the main tourist attractions in the area, that offer tours around the city of Marbella from a different point of view.
If you arrive at the park at dusk with the idea of going out for a drink later on, you may find interesting to know that the Buddha Club is just on the other side of the park, as well as the Mombasa Café.
It’s not hard to find at all, you can plan your visit to the park straight after visiting the old quarter. If you decide to catch a bus, all the urban lines in Marbella stop in front of the park and if you go by car you may use the 'Avenida del Mar' public parking, or the parking lot situated in the 'Parquesol' building.
