For the adult population, there will be a guided tour of ‘Huelva and its Parks’, which includes a tour of the Jardines del Muelle, better known as Parque de las Palomas, and Juan Ceada Infantes Park, highlighting its wealth, the importance of its different green areas and the need for all citizens to be involved in their maintenance and protection, always seeking the common good.
During the tour, thanks to the collaboration of the Huelva-based company Platalea, which has extensive experience in this matter, attendees will also be introduced to the most outstanding aspects of the history, buildings and sculptures that both parks have, as well as the flora and fauna that inhabit them.
