The Gulbenkian Park in Lisbon covers an area of 7.5 hectares. There you can see a rich collection of trees, two lakes, a stream, bridges, various flower beds and a rose garden. An additional attraction of the park are numerous sculptures made by national and international artists depicting, among others, animals.

During the summer, various cultural events take place in the amphitheater designed for 1,000 people.

Gulbenkian Park was officially opened in 1969. It was built on the site where once Palacio Azambuja Park or dos Meninos de Palhava and the Spanish embassy were located. It is part of the cultural center of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. The park has been designed to reflect the natural nature of the place and preserve as much of the original vegetation as possible. Its authors were the architects Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles and António Viana Barreiro.
