4 different local parks for 8 awesome occasions in Malta & Gozo
Time to park yourself in these top destinations

Kristina Cassar Dowling

A trip to the park is always great when you’re fully prepped and ready to go. Heading to the wrong park for the wrong activity can be a drag so we’ve equipped you with a handy list of park activities even letting you in on the go-to destinations.

Buskett Woodlands

Paint a picture

Getting in the zone is ideal when you’re exploring creative surges. How much more in-the-zone can you be than with a natural setting to inspire you? Take your painting supplies, grab a book, or some charcoal pencils, and hit Buskett with a plein air mentality.

Discover plant life

Mini binoculars? Check. Smart-phone camera? Check. Little adventurers notepad? Check. Give your little friends a wildlife tour, discover new plants, discuss their uniqueness and learn more about the plant life and possible wildlife that surrounds you.

Time for some sports

Get your head in active mode. Slap on your sports gear and go for a jog - it’s way better than running on a tarmac road and you’ll also be able to breathe in cleaner air. Who would have thought nature could be so revitalising? Thank you for that, trees.

Ta’ Qali National Park

Go for a bike ride

Bikes are great. Not only do they pack in a lot of exercise, working those seemingly non-existent muscles, but they also allow us to enjoy our time in nature. Ta’ Qali is a great spot to learn how to ride with your younger audience.

A spot of yoga

Relax. Breathe. Ahh! Yoga in Ta’ Qali, of course! Finding a quiet spot is not all that difficult in this area, and you can easily discover a secluded zone where peace and zen await!

San Anton Gardens

Feel like royalty

There’s no better spot to feel totally regal than in San Anton Gardens. It’s so majestic and naturally beautiful you’ll never want to leave. A walk through the gardens can be elevating, breathtaking and soothing all at the same time.

Go on a romantic date

Looking for romance? Why not hit San Anton Gardens for a real showstopper? Treat your love interest to a picnic in the garden where you can create your own little haven while the birds (possibly even peacocks) serenade your afternoon dejeuner sur l’herbe.

Kennedy Grove

Spend Sunday with the fam

Ultimate nature hunting family destination? Probably Kennedy Grove; it’s a good balance between natural surroundings and convenience, giving the older family members a bench to sit on and the younger squad a play area to thrive in.
