This is a very nice, clean, well planned park, worthy of visiting and exploring. It can be easily missed as you drive south on route R1-2 towards Sao Joao from Madalena. Keep on eye out for well groomed grounds on both sides of the road as the R1-2 highway passes directly through the middle of the park, cutting it in half. You will see it just before entering the town of Sao Joao. On one side you find a kids' adventure playground with climbing apparatus, a conditioning and exercising course with several exercise stations that takes you through the woods, a paved & fenced soccer pitch, washrooms, a large deer enclosure and even an ecological research area where various species of trees have been planted for study. There is a nice ocean view as well from the soccer pitch. On the opposite side of the road are trails covering the various undulations of the landscape. Each of the trails have areas set up with picnic tables and BBQ pits. On this side of the road you will likely notice the lovely religious monument dedicated to those in the area who lost life and property from the volcanic eruption of 1718. If you are looking for a family outing on Pico, where grounds are super clean with lots of room and plenty of things to do, then this park is the one you want. For the adventurous there is also an excellent 8 km coastal trail that begins here and ends at the windmill at Ponta Rasa (separate review).
