Had an afternoon walk around this beautiful and peaceful park. The view from the battery was great. Piped music around the path. Real treat.

It was quite a long walk from my hotel, but the park itself is quite a paradise. Beautifully kept, with a lot of natives frequenting it, there's no English on any of the information, all is in Spanish which is a good recommendation for me lol, even if it makes understanding anything more challenging ;)

You can walk to this park from Carihuela seafront, it takes about 15 mins. but is all uphill. Alternatively you can go by train from Torremolinos, just one stop to Montemar Alto and then about 5 mins. walk over the bridge to the entrance. If you drive there as we did you can leave your car in the park itself, no charge, or in the streets nearby. The park is well maintained and there are some beautifully manicured trees/bushes but not a lot of flowering plants/shrubs. The area for children looked good with swings, trampolines etc. and a Merry Go Round which was not operating on our visit. In the centre of the park there is also a large ornamental lake with rowing boats on. Around the perimeter there is a jogging and cycle track with several adult exercise areas. A Mirador (tower) which you can climb by stairs, or you can use the lift, gives good views of the coastline and adjacent are several artillery guns to view. The park is not open on Mondays and on other days does not open until 11.00 am.

We recently paid a visit to this park when staying in Torremolinos, It took us a little while before we found the correct way up and the hill is a fairly steep climb. It is worth noting that the park does not open until 11.00 a.m. as we arrived about 10.45 so had to wait along with others both on foot and in cars. The park itself is very well laid out and maintained and provides good views towards the sea, in particular from the Mirador which you can either take stairs or there is a lift available to use to reach the top. There are a number of fountains, a children's play area and a lake which had boats available, the railway line runs along the top edge of the park. It provides a different view of the area and is worth a look although on a very hot day it would be a long hike up the hill. It would be nice if there was a café available to have a coffee or drink but all we saw were vending machines

You get an expansive view of the coast from the top of the tower, making it well worth the uphill climb to the park. The running and jogging paths are pad; strolling is very comfortable. We also used the human-powered exercise equipment found along the track. You can rent a rowboat and putter around in the pond.
