The chamber of commerce— or local equivalent— should hire you pronto! Lovely portrait of the park.

I believe I walked by the very top tip of this park hustling over to Zé for a roasted chicken. I told myself I needed to come back and see what was on the other side of the park’s wall. That has not happened. Your post showed me what a gem I missed. Thanks for the tour and incentive to get over there and explore.

I adore the way so many of Lisbon's parks have good seating under big trees, plus a kiosk with food and beverages.

That reminds me - I should do one of this amazing tree in another park
