Discover with us the most natural part of the cities through its gardens and green corners.
The Side of Life is formed by a set of fountains, canals, lakes and some waterfalls that create different environments with water in motion. The whole complex has large green areas, with large recreational areas and paths that invite to the walk.
The vegetation of the area is composed of large grass meadows, where some species of riparian trees such as poplars, willows and ash trees are scattered. There are also other species typical of gardens such as the tipuanas, neros or bougainvillea. As a plant to be highlighted, mention should be made of the enea, which is found along the entire route, planted at the edge of the watercourse.
