Parque de 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 9,000 square metre 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 a 15-metre-high observation tower offering views out to sea, an exercise area, a cycle lane (of course), a running track, a large children’s play area and a stage where concerts and shows are held at various times throughout the year.
There are over 1,000 trees from 25 different species in the park. Note, though, that pets are not allowed in the park.
