Valencia Parks

Botanical Gardens:

Botanic GardenAlthough Valencia Botanical Gardens date back a very long time, they did not move to their current site (Huerto de Tramoyeres) until 1802. The University of Valencia gave a great deal of wherewithal to the new gardens which increased their links with other Spanish and foreign botanical gardens and achieved great renown.
Since 1802, they have had over 3,000 different plant species and a variety of plants from extremely different climates. There are still different early 19th-century style greenhouses.

Jardines del Viejo Cauce del Turia (Gardens of the Old Course of the River Turia):

After the floods of 1957, the course of the river Turia was artificially diverted south of the city. The old river bed therefore dried up and was turned into a series of differently-designed gardens and a new focal point for the city at the same time. Gulliver's children's park and the gardens opposite the Palacio de la Música are of special interest.
