Malaga Park (Parque de Malaga)
Covering more than three hectares and centered around three main pathways bordering both sides of the Paseo de Parque, Málaga Park was created at the end of the 19th century on land reclaimed from the Mediterranean Sea. Stretching along Málaga’s seafront from Plaza del General Torrijos to the Plaza de la Marina, the gardens are planted with perfumed roses, orange and cypress trees as well as exotic tropical shrubs and palm trees.
On the north side of the Paseo de Parque are several follies and fountains, including the Fuente de los Niños (Fountain of the Baby Boys) by revered ceramicist Juan Ruiz de Luna (1967). A succession of marble Neo-classical statues celebrate famous figures associated with Málaga, such as poet Salvador Rueda and artist Bernado Ferrándiz, and a cute little bronze of a donkey by Jaime Fernández Pimentel stands near the children’s play area. Pimentel was also responsible for the flying seagulls on the beguiling, open-air Eduardo Ocón Auditorium, which dates from 1962; there are weekly concerts held there on Sunday at noon as well as movie nights and music festivals in summer. Today the park is a popular stop on guided cycling tours of the city and horse-and-carriage rides also pass by the gardens.
