    Good use of green and leisure space in Lisbon
    This is a 26 hectare public park just that was named after King Edward VII of England after his visit to Portugal in 1903. The present configuration was the design of Portuguese architect Francisco keil do Amaral in 1945 and acts somewhat as a green and park extension of Ave. da Liberdade to the northwest of Praça Marquês de Pombal. The park slants downhill from northwest to southeast in the same line as the avenue. From the Miraduouro at the northwest end of Parque Eduardo VII, you can see all the way through the park, into Baixi and to the Tangus River in the distance. Like many parks across Europe there are small gardens, tree lined footpaths, fountain pools, occasional sculptures and statues scattered around, kiosk, cafe and other points of interest. Here you can look for the Carlos Lopes Pavilion, Estufa Fria, 25 April Monument (northwest end) and grand monument of Marquês de Pombal (southeast end). There is a long row of managed hedges as well that continue in a straight path from Ave. da Liberdade that extend almost from end to end as well. Overall, Parque Eduardo VII is a good use of green and leisure space for those who live and/or work in this area of Lisbon and potentially a nice spot for tourists and visitors to spend time if you are seeking wide green space during time spent in the city.

    A cozy place to relax and chill out
    An exciting wide open alley to have a walk around if you like open spaces. If you happened to be a lucky one who travel with dogs, it is on of the best spots for your pet. You can also observe plances landing at the airport, while a stunning panorama view down the city and the river opens up from the top.

    This is a huge park with hidden botanical gardens, which were a great find.
    We asked our taxi driver to take us to the botanical gardens & we ended up at Parque Eduardo VII botanical greenhouses, rather than Jardim Botanico. Although we were initially disappointed, we decided to go in anyway. We were pleasantly surprised, there are 3 "greenhouses"; hot, cold & sweet - but they're not traditional glasshouses, & although it was a little humid in the "hot" house, it was never uncomfortable. The areas were almost empty of people & there are plenty of benches to sit & relax & take in the beautiful surroundings. Outside of the botanical areas is a lovely landscaped lake & gardens, another great place to find a shady spot & chill. The park extends all the way to Avenue Liberdade, with striking monuments & formal areas.

    Beautiful views
    The park is not too large that you can't navigate around it but the views are worth it. It is right off the Marques de Pombal metro and where all the tour buses stop, so easy to get too. A quick walk from there takes you to the top of the park where you can view all the way down the main street in Lisbon to the waterfront. Maybe some of the best views in the city. Definitely recommend the visit.

    Regular tourist stop
    The park is a wide slope becoming interesting mainly on the rising right side with statues, a baroque church and an upmarket garden restaurant. Sheltered outdoors tennis courts take up the other side, the small botanical garden is almost hidden in the uppermost corner. The local metro station on a side street is elegant.

    Huge Hillside Park
    This is a huge park and it is sited in the middle of the city. On a steep hillside, so the good strategy is to start at the top and walk downhill. Some nice flower beds, great views of the lower city, ends at the big traffic circle. All the tour buses come here to park.

    Central Greenspace with a Spectacular View
    This park was located literally across the street from our hotel in Lisbon. It was a convenient and enjoyable alternative route to reach the Gray Line meeting point at its southern end where several of our tours started from. The park is one of the larger greenspaces in central Lisbon at some 64 acres in size. It is rectangular stretching north/ north east from the Marques De Pombal and Av. Da Liberdade. It is named in honour of King Edward VII of England after his visit to Portugal in 1903 to strengthen ties between the two countries and reaffirm their ancient alliance. The present design of the park dates from 1945. There are several structures in the park. On its eastern side near the Parque Metro Station is the Pavilhao Carlos Lopes (Carlos Lopes Pavilliion). This was built in 1922 as the Portuguese Pavilion for the International Exposition in Brazil and later transported to Lisbon. At present it is used for various private events. At the north end of the park on Almaeda Cardeal Cerejeira is the Miradouro Parque Eduardo VII an observation point that provides a sweeping view of the City of Lisbon and the Tagus River. South of this on the western edge of the park is the Estufa Fria a massive greenhouse divided into three distinct parts: Estufa Frie ( Cold Greenhouse), Estufa Quente ( Hot Greenhouse), and Estufa Doce (Sweet Greenhouse). The greenhouse originally opened in 1933 and was completely remodeled in 2011. The park is the site of the annual Lisbon Book Fair held in May and June since the 1930s. The park also is host to the Wonderland Lisboa a Christmas market with activities for children. Aside from these annual events the park attracts hundreds of locals daily to jog, walk their dogs or just enjoy its natural beauty.

    Lovely park
    A lovely park with vast views, a stunning pavilion and plenty of places to relax in the sun or shade. Well connected to the vintage tram 24 route (near the top) and Marques de Pombal metro (near the bottom). It slopes ... a lot.

    Expansive Sloped Park
    Lucky for us we always found ourselves walking through the park down towards the Marquis of Pombal statue. The slope was gradual but down is always better than having to walk up! The park was quiet and surprised us with its size. It had its own metro station entrance, a botanical park, and a maze of well manicured bushes that some athletic dogs were leaping over and over! Unfortunately we never did get to see the views from the top of the park as we always visited in the evening. Lighting was good and plentiful so we had no qualms about walking through it.

Parque King Edward VII with its manicured lawns and wide walkways is a must see when you visit Lisbon.. the benches in the park provide place for rest and relaxation at your leisure.
Totally enjoyed the time.

Large rectangular green park in Lisbon on a hillside whose upper reaches have nice views of the city. Named after Britain’s Edward VII after his visit in 1903, the park is a popular stop for locals and tourists alike.

The views from the upper part of the park towards the city are very pretty. It can sometimes get crowded so best to come early for the best photos

Beautiful park. Great place to go for a stroll day or night, stunning views down to the waterfront, and nearly always busy.
