Parque de Santa Catalina - Gran Canaria, Spain
Parque de Santa Catalina
Porte Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria, Spain 35007Map
Neighborhood: Santa Catalina
Overview

Located next to La Luz and Las Palmas Ports, this park's wide central area is surrounded by the Science Museum, the Elder Building, a play area for children and a modern tourist office. It's not only a place where the people of Las Palmas enjoy themselves, but also used for big events in the capital, such as Carnival, concerts and other recreational activities. On the tables and benches, the locals play chess and dominoes, whilst visitors enjoy the outdoor terraces or shops nearby. In one of the corners is a statue of "Lolita Pluma", perhaps the most popular character in this city, an elderly woman who could be seen every day around the park, wearing too much make-up and always surrounded by her darling cats. For more information, contact City Hall at the above number.
