Next to the park, runs the Acequíon canal that joins the salty lagoon with the Mediterranean Sea.
The enclosure is completely fenced and its opening hours to the public are from 10a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
And in front of the Doña Sinforosa park, the structure of the ship where once wooden boats were built by the caulking masters still stands.
Before being a public park, this site was known as “La casa de los Portales”; It was a huge house built at the beginning of the 20th century.
Of all the owners of the house, the most famous and loved by the inhabitants of Torrevieja was a lady called Doña Sinforosa, appreciated for her good nature and for having no qualms about letting the local children visit the gardens whenever they wanted.
The biodiversity of the park was so interesting that in the past it was classified as being of environmental scientific interest and today it is valued by citizens as an authentic oasis by the sea.
