Carrer de Tavern, 8-10
Sarrià - Sant Gervasi
When we entered the park, towering pines and palm trees give way to a winding road with stone stairways that provide access to the interior space. It is a path that goes around the park where there are rest areas with benches, some stone, inherited from the old propietaris- and flowerbeds particularly rich in palm trees. In a wide open area there is a children's play areas accessible and inclusive Barcelona. Everything has been conceived with a utilitarian criterion for small recreation, and leisure and meeting higher.
The Balearic vegetables are so high and thick that the view can only look forward. All this makes the garden look much larger than it actually is. Sometimes the path perimeter expands to create a small place that invites you to sit a while.
The lush vegetation insulates the visitor's tight urban environment that surrounds the park, and much of the tree specimens are large and considerable age, because they were planted by the former owners of the gardens in the early twentieth century.
There are pines (Pinus halepensis),
the Himalayan cedar (Cedrus deodara),
chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum),
cypress (Cupressus sempervirens),
jacarandas (Jacaranda mimosifolia)
and Black Pepper trees (Schinus molle).
Among the highlights palms (Washingtonia filifera),
spectacular groups of palms (Chamaerops humilis)
and Canary Island date palms (Phoenix canariensis).
