Long Description:
Ferrera Park, the lung of the city center, is a wide, beautiful and peaceful natural space that hundreds of people, of all generations, appreciate and enjoy every day.

For centuries it was owned by the successive Marquises of Ferrera, forming part of the estate of the palace of the same name. The Avilés City Council acquired it for public use, being inaugurated by King Juan Carlos I in May 1976.

It is divided into two clearly differentiated parts: the "English-style" park and the "French Garden." The first combines open spaces of meadow, water pond and wooded areas with centenary specimens of yews, cedars, pines, oaks, birches, chestnut trees, etc. The second has all the elements that define a palatial garden: trees, pergolas, fountains and unique boxwood paths configuring the flower beds.

The park is equipped with abundant rest furniture, as well as services such as: playground, signposted areas and technically equipped for sports, including gymnastic equipment, newspaper library, musical theater, environmental classroom, public bathrooms, etc.

It opens at 7.00 am and closes at 11.00 pm, having five entrances: through Galiana, Rivero, Cervantes, del Marqués streets and through the lobby of the Municipal House of Culture.
