Built around 1940, the park encompasses the areas of the gardens of Palácio Condes Castro Guimarães and the property of the Viscount of Gandarinha. Since the first half of the 16th century, the space had already been used as a recreational, leisure and agricultural estate. In the 19th century, it was purchased by the Viscount of Gandarinha, who built a romantic park here. The garden of Palácio Condes Castro Guimarães (Counts of Castro Guimarães Palace) is also characterised by a touch of romanticism and, in 1944, after the Gandarinha land was acquired, the two areas were united and open to the public. The park has vast lawns, herbaceous flowerbeds and bushes, some wood with large trees and pathways. Every Saturday the park hosts a Bio vegetable and fruit market. The Park also includes a section of the Ribeira dos Mochos, lakes, a field for traditional games and a picnic area where you can enjoy your Cascais Genial Picnic in the shadow.
