Faial Sports Park

The Faial Sports Park, located close to the Faial Beach Complex on the river mouth, is a park with an area of 23,628 m2 used for recreational activities. 

Various attractions can be found in this park’s vast green area, such as a cycle track, a mini-track for children’s bikes, a skate park and areas set aside for playing traditional sports from the island - among many other features. 

The recreational activities park hugs the edge of the steep banks of the mouth of the Faial river. To the north lie the moody basalt formations of the Cabrestante Hill and to the south begins the mountainous escarpment that runs along the right-hand bank of the river. 

The land where this recreational park has been built is, in effect, a look-out point over the valley that enjoys wonderful sea views.
