Parks and Gardens

Ajuda Public Garden

This green space is located in a heavily urbanised area of Ajuda, parish of São Martinho, which was inaugurated on the 8th of August 2005. It has an area of 11,800 m2.

The space originated in a set of areas ceded from land division operations, taking the form of a large patio.

Taking into account the memory of the place, the garden was designed taking into account the previous existence of banana plantations, extensive dry stone wall for shelter from the winds, and the availability of water from the Levada dos Piornais, so that a set of municipal vegetable gardens was delimited there in the middle of the urban area, an innovation in the municipality of Funchal.
