Parque La Bateria – Battery Park – is a fairly large, neat and well laid-out municipal park in Torremolinos, covering around 74,000 square metres and with a boating lake in the centre.
The C1 ‘Cercania’ train stops at Montemar-Alto (one stop after Torremolinos itself) which is almost by the entrance to the park. There is also adequate parking near the park for those travelling by car.
The park is very neat and tidy, well laid out with well-maintained trees and shrubs, ornamental fountains and a number of artillery pieces from the 1930’s. The area is eminently suitable for those with mobility problems. The pathways are wide, up to five metres in parts.
There is an ornamental fountain as well as a number of sculptures and statues.
There is a separate play area for kids.
At the centre of the park is a boating lake
Parque la Bateria is certainly a lovely place to spend a few hours. Very neat and tidy, relaxing even. I would place it second to Parque de la Paloma in Benalmádena, by far the best in the province in my opinion.
Unfortunately, the only refreshments available in La Bateria come from machines, so if you don’t fancy a Twix and cool coffee then you are a bit stuck.
