Take The Kids To The Almuñécar Playgrounds and Parks

Almuñécar Playgrounds and Parks - Paseo del Altillo Climbing

If you have little ones, you are bound to be seeking out a place for them to burn off a little energy.  We share with you the Almuñécar playgrounds and parks, with a few extras thrown in as well.  The playgrounds are all very similar, just in different locations.  We share a photo of each so you can see which have swings, slides, climbing, bars and more.

Almuñécar Playgrounds and Parks

Many of the playgrounds and exercise equipment areas are located along the beach paseo, but there are a few hidden and worth the find.  All are marked on the map below.  There are some great places in Costa Tropical, which is on the coast of Granada.

  • Paseo San Cristobal
  • Paseo del Altillo
  • Paseo Puerta del Mar
  • Paseo Velilla
  • Barrio San Miguel – just atop the hill about 2 blocks from the castle.
  • Parque Rio Verde
  • Behind Majuelo Park, just below San Miguel Castle.
  • Roman Aqueduct Seco III – behind Santa Cruz Resort
  • N340 & Av. Fenicia in El Corte Chino parking lot, across from Friday Market
  • Majuelo Botanical Park
  • Mediterraneo Park – this is more of a nature hike.  At the entrance to this area, you will find public basketball courts.  It is at the far end of Velilla Beach.
  • Aqueduct Torrecuevas – a bit out-of-town, but it has a playground, exercise area, and loads of running around space.
  • Parque de Santa Cruz


Exercise Equipment

These are marketed towards the seniors to promote healthy living.  That said there are many kids who also use them.  If the kids are using them, please give way to the seniors, if it is crowded.

  • Paseo San Cristobal
  • Paseo Calietta
  • Paseo Velilla
  • Aqueduct Torrecuevas

More Recreational Activities

The fútbol pitch along San Cristobal also doubles as a hang out for the seniors to play pétanque (it’s like bocce, only the balls are thrown, not rolled).  There are public basketball courts available at then very end of Velilla beach, next to Parque Mediterraneo.  You will also find other recreational activities on the map, like basketball courts and more.

  • Swimming pools – have the swimming icon
  • Net courts for tennis and padel have the racket icon
  • Fútbol pitches have the kid and ball icon
  • Bicycle paths along the Paseo San Cristobal and Paseo Velilla are marked by blue lines
