An oasis of unexpected peace beside the busy M-30 at the western end of the Salamanca district, this mature gem of a park dates from the 17th century and manages to support a wide selection of trees from all over the world within its small confines. Near the upper entrance is an information section with a cafe/restaurant, small art gallery, and a library. Around the park is the tiny district known as Quinta del Berro, where a number of stylish detached 1920s villas stand sedately in quiet tree-lined lanes.
