Parque García Sanabria (García Sanabria Park), Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Parque García Sanabria (García Sanabria Park), Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Garcia Sanabria Park is a large area of gardens, fountains and what might be called "architectural groups." It is named for mayor Garcia Sanabria, who enabled its construction. The park covers an area of more than 67,000 square feet. In 1973 an international exhibition of thirteen sculptures were unveiled in the park.

The park also features a floral clock. It was made in Switzerland and donated to Tenerife by the Consul of Denmark in 1958. Two staircases are on either side of the clock. The clock is continually replanted throughout the year so it is always blooming. The central fountain of the park is directly behind the clock.

The Fernando Pessoa Square is right by the park. Fernando Pessoa was a famous Portuguese poet and writer who wrote prolifically in French, Spanish and English as well as Portuguese. The square is a representation of the astral situation when Lisbon was founded. It shows the position of the planets and the signs of the zodiac.
