They have lots of smaller parks which are a great break from the city. The larger parks are in Taipa and Coloane. I will add more here later
S. Francisco Garden. I really like the S. Francisco Garden. It is small, but nice. I think I like it because it is close to the historical center, yet big enough that you can get up away from the main roads too. If you step out of the Grand Lisboa and turn left on Rua de Santa Clara, it is a short ways away and on the other side of the street. They also plant some flowers in the shape of the current year, that can be seen from the road.
Guia. The biggest park on the Macau peninsula is Monte Guia, or Parque Municipal da Colina da Guia. This isn't too far of a walk from the Grand Lisboa, but it is steep geting there. This is my wife's favorite park. She and some of her friends go here at least once a week. This has some great views of Macau too. To see more of my photos, go to my Guia page.
Jardim Lou Lim Ieoc is small, but a really nice garden. It is a Suzhouan garden, and the Macao Tourism Office calls it the most Chinese of all of Macau's gardens. It has a nice pond, rock formations, and gazebo. Nowadays it seems a little out of place, hidden amongst tall buildings, but is a nice break from the urban surroundings. It is a little out of the way, but being close to both the Dr Sun Yat Sen Memorial House and the Macau Tea Culture House, it is worth the trip. To see more of my photos, go to my Lou Lim Ieoc page.
Jardim das Artes, or Arts Garden, runs along Avenida da Amizade, just down from the Lisboa and Wynn. Jardim das Artes page.
Dr. Carlos d’Assumpcao Park is several blocks long, and located in an office area close to many of the casinos. Not much for tourists to see, but a nice place to sit and relax. I like to walk thrugh it when I am in the area. Dr. Carlos d’Assumpcao Park page.
Jardim Vasco da Gama. On the way to Monte Guia if you are coming from the historic center. The last time I was there they were doing some renovations, and it was more plaza than garden, so there wasn't much reason to stop by unless you wanted to see a bust of Vasco da Gama, or were in the area and wanted to sit down for a bit. I've heard it looks better now that the renovations are done and has a lot more garden to it. I only have three photos posted right now, but you can see them on my Vasco Da Gama page.
Jardim da Cidade das Flores. This is another garden based on the classical garden of Suzhou. Not as old or as well known as Jardim Lou Lim Ieoc, but it is a nice garden tucked away in a residential area of Taipa, not too far from the historic village of Taipa. You won't see many tourists here, but it is a nice place to relax for a bit. I only have a few photos posted right now, but you can see them on my Jardim da Cidade das Flores page.
The Carmel Garden is a small garden at the edge of the Taipa old village. close to Taipa Municipal Garden, the Taipa Houses, and Our Lady of Carmel Church. There are a few more pictures on my Carmel Garden page.
The Taipa Municipal Garden is between the Taipa old village, and the Cotai Strip. It is a short walk from the Venetian or Galaxy casino, and a good path to take if you are going to the Taipa old village. The Taipa Houses Museum is also on the grounds. There is more to see than what I have pictures of, but you can see more on my Taipa Municipal Garden page.
Hac Sa beach. The only time I was here, the weather wasn't the greatest, so I didn't spend too much time here, but did take a few pictures you can see at my Hac Sa beach page.
