PARQUE LA BATERIA, TORREMOLINOS

Bateria Park was originally a military base in the 1940’s but has now been developed into a  lovely park and recreation area. It incorporates a 9,000 sq.m boating lake, cycle tracks, large children’s playground with huge slides, trampolines, tyre swings etc. There are fountains, statues, tunnels, foot paths and the lovely dummy tree where those giving up their dummy can hang it on the tree. Everything is set in well landscaped parkland of some 74,000 sq.m. Its original purpose as a military base has not been forgotten either and you will be able to see some of the original guns around the park. You will also be able to appreciate its position by climbing the 15 metre high tower that looks out across the bay. There is plenty of free parking. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 11.am until 9pm and from 5.30pm-9pm on Mondays.
