Gardens and parks
- Jewist Park: The Jesuit Park owes its name to the fact that it was originally an orchard belonging to the Jesuits, but they were ceded to the city council to turn it into a public space. In addition to preserving the fruit trees of its beginnings, it has children's areas, sports, a pond with ducks and even a bike path.
- Huerto de Calixto y Melibea: Located in the heart of the city, on the wall and with the Tormes River at its feet, it was in this beautiful enclave where Fernando de Rojas located the meeting of the protagonists of La Celestina.
- River walk: This beautiful route runs between the Enrique Estevan bridge and the Aldehuela park, is parallel to the river and is suitable for both cycling and walking.
- Huerta Otea Botanical Park: This park stands out for the more than 60 species of plants it houses. Most come from the province, but there are also others brought from other parts of the world. The extensive grounds have numerous benches for sitting, a small playground and a beautiful sculpture dedicated to motherhood.
- La Aldehuela: La Aldehuela is the ideal place to practice all kinds of sports, as well as being the perfect space to have a drink on weekends. Its remodeling in recent years has allowed it to house a large number of sports facilities, among which a football field, tennis courts, ping-pong tables ... For the quieter, La Aldehuela also has a large wooded area with paths to take a walk and benches to sit on.
- Parque de la Alamedilla: This central natural space was created on land that had served to carry out agricultural work. For many years it housed a zoological nucleus, and today you can still see geese, ducks and swans in the wild.
- Parque de San Francisco: It is a large park in the heart of the city, between the Paseo de Carmelitas and the Paseo de San Vicente. It is the ideal place to disconnect and enjoy the peace without leaving the urban center.
