Nothing better than going to a ‘pawesome’ dog friendly garden to enjoy an afternoon with our best friend. That’s what about the first post about Lisbon will be! Max and Louise have been playing at some of the coolest gardens in town. Check them out!
1. Casino Estoril Garden
Very close to where we live, Europe’s biggest Casino is set in beautiful gardens where residents usually go with their dogs at the end of the day. You’ll be able to see dogs walking and playing all day long but after 6PM is like “dog lovers meeting point”. This gorgeous garden is located in the heart of Estoril, just 20 minutes from the center of Lisbon.
2. Parque Do Tejo
‘Parque Do Tejo’ is an open air leisure area. Located at Parque Das Nações, Lisbon’s modern neighborhood, that’s the vast park where humans and pets have a lot of comfort and enjoy its location by the river. People say that this park “gave back the river to the city” and we do agree with them!
3. Jardim da Parede
There is a big garden in the center of Parede, a pleasant neighborhood in Cascais. We used to go there when we arrived in Portugal in 2014. That used to be Max and Louise’s favorite garden here in Cascais. Many residents walk their dogs here and this is a nice place to meet people and furry friends. Surrounded by restautants, supermarkets, different stores, ‘Parede Garden’ is a nice choice when visiting Cascais.
4. Jardim de Belém
This romantic garden is located in Belém, a prime area of Lisbon. Very close to Tagus River and the Jerónimos Monastery, this Garden fits perfectly in this historical area which is extremely connected to the discoveries. Perfect spot to run and play with the ball, Max and Louise’s favorite thing! You can also enjoy some cafés with terrace near by where pets are accepted. Not that bad!
5. Jardim Campo Grande
One of the biggest garden located in the center of Lisbon has now the first dog park of the city. It’s a ‘pawsome’ closed area where all dogs can have a lot of fun together. Located in Alvalade, Lisbon, you can easily park your car and enjoy an afternoon here. There are cafés and a bar at the park if you want to eat or have some drinks.
6. Parque Eduardo VII
Very close to the famous ‘Marquês de Pombal’ Square and not so far to Lisbon’s historical city center, ‘Parque Eduardo VII’ is set in the heart of the city. Max and Louise enjoy a lot playing here. We always explore a new area in the park when we come. There are a lot of green areas to play with the dogs. You can park anywhere around the park and you are going to find people walking their dogs and playing around. After playing, what we suggest you is to walk down at ‘Avenida da Liberdade” to explore this wonderful neighborhood and one of the most beautiful avenues in Europe.
7. Tagus River
It isn’t a real park or a garden but if you walk along the Tagus River you will find many green areas where you can play with your dog. During Spring time, we usually go to have lunch at one of the restaurants (there are many!) with a beautiful view of the river. First, we play a little bit and then we have lunch while Max and Louise are sleeping under the table at the terrace. What we suggest to do here is to walk from Belém to Alcantara dock to enjoy local people running, walking dogs and relaxing by the river.
