Las Palmas has big plans for Ciudad Jardin or the Garden City. It wants the area to become a tourist attraction that gives people something to look at between the beach and port districts, and old town Vegueta and Triana. [Read more…]
The Ciudad Jardín of Garden City area is the only area in central Las Palmas where you’ll get a house or villa surrounded by a garden.
Developed by the British around the beginning for the 20th Century, Ciudad Jardín remains an upmarket property area, although there are some apartments and even a couple of condominiums within its limits.
Ciudad Jardín is right in the middle of Las Palmas but is a little short of places to shop and eat out. It’s largely residential and is popular with professionals who need easy access to the airport and the port.
Prices in Ciudad Jardín are high but you do get a lot for your money (trees, grass, etc) compared to more urban ares of the city. It’s a peaceful barrio with life going on behind fences and walls.
