Parque de los Tres Jardines  (Three Gardens Park) in San Pedro de Alcántara was opened in October 2012 and it is located in the low lying flood plains of the River Guadaliza to the east of the town on the site of an old nursery. The 'three gardens' of its name refers to the three different garden areas which could originally be found within the park - the "jardín árabe" (Arab garden), the "jardín mediterráneo" (Mediterranean garden) and the "jardín subtropical" (subtropical garden).

This shortish circular route takes you round the rocky massif that lies just to the north of the Refugio de Juanar with an optional 45 minute diversion to the top of the jagged ridge of Los Cuchillos, El Picacho de Castillejos (1238m). Even though I’ve graded the walk as Easy/Medium don’t imagine that this is in any way a dull route.

El Calvario is an interesting town park that has made use of the land around the old hermatige chapel Ermita del Calvario. On this land it was traditional to celebrate the day of the "tostón", a tradition fiesta to roast the new crop of chestnuts from the forest and make a small pilgrimage to the ermita.

This parks main feature is its large lake, actually a reservior built to irrigate the sugar plantation of La Colonia San Pedro. Those feeling energetic enough can practice their wakeboarding without the need of a motorboat. The Marbella Wakeboard Centre (was called Cable Ski) offers a chance to really appreciate the spectacular scenery on the move.

King Fahiad Gardens are easily seen from the Golden Mile, they are just below the Saudi Arabian King's house and feature the white 'sword of Arabia' and a small lake with fountain.
