Fun for children and adults
In Playa de Aro there are activities for everyone: for mums and dads who want to go shopping, for children who want to discover local fauna and flora, and for young people who want to go out at night in one of the most fashionable towns on the Costa Brava.
Parc dels Estanys
Parc dels Estanys (Pond Park) is a natural space that is 150,000 m2 in size and located in the centre of the area. An educational trail runs through it with several viewpoints for the observation of up to 250 species of birds. It also has a raft with a capacity of 60,000m3 that collects water from the surplus of the Riudaura River and the town’s water network thanks to a hydraulic work that prevents flooding in the urban area of Playa de Aro. The park has a dirt road that surrounds the pond that is ideal for walking or cycling.
