“Concrete Desert”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

You have to walk through some of the park to get from the metro station to the Aquarium, if you are expecting any aspect of green in this park there is none. White concrete is the order of the day with with graffiti sprayed here and there. You can get a cable from one bit of the concrete expanse to another, over the water, the only advantage to this is it avoids walking on the wooden walkway - I want to see a structural engineers report before I set foot on it again!
A means to an end but not worth a visit in it's own right in my view.

“Huge!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This park is a wast and huge. You van wal and walk and never get there but on the way its things to see and to do. Nice place to go on a sunday when everything else is closed down. Here you have the oceanario, cabble car, shopping mall, restaurants, fair for kids or just benches to relax on.

“beautiful neighborhood”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

You notice immediately that Parque Das Nacoes is the area for the wealthy lisboan, with parks that stretches for miles and beautiful architecture, which keeps you engaged for hours as you walk up and down the pier. The restaurants though are a bit pricy, probably due to the large number of tourist who go here. Definently worth a trip!

“The very modern side of Lisbon.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This area was built for Expo in 1998! It's full of modern buildings and former pavilions from the expo.. The largest aquarium in Europe is located here! There's also many great restaurants & clubs in the area!

Only worth seeing if you wish to see the more so modern side of Lisbon.
