Lisbon’s largest park is named after Britain’s King Edward VII who visited here in 1903 on a diplomatic tour. The park is reclaimed land where once there was a basalt quarry far from the centre of the smaller capital city. The park slopes downhill from the Rua Marquês de Fronteira in the north down to the Marquês de Pombal roundabout. The parks most distinctive characteristic is the box hedge maze that runs the whole length. There are a number of eateries in and around Parque Eduardo VII. Look out for the funky Praia no Parque which has a cool scene as well as great cocktails and food.
