This beautiful green area opened in 1995 , it is localed in the neighbour town of Benalmádena and it is considered as one of the best and most visited parks in Costa del Sol due to its beauty and its charm.
Parque de la Paloma covers a big area of land and it has an artificial lake in its centre, leisure and relax areas and some cafés.
