The Avenue of the Bananas is the main axis of the park: the crossing from the south to the north and configures, with the paths that create it, a series of spaces and environments for different uses. In the lower part there is the large esplanade of games with the train; Above, the lake, the gardens with glorieta and viewpoints, the paths, the living areas and the pool occupy the space of the old beams. In the central part, the structure of terraces and gardens has been maintained, which includes the two emblematic pieces of the park, the palace and the plataneda. The vegetation, which is denser in the central part, is formed by a large variety of species, among which there is a clear distinction, both for the number and its uniqueness, bananas, palm trees of the Canary Islands and the lavender palms.
