Dear friends of Trekearth

This is is a new up market area of Lisbon. The former grounds of the 'Expo 98' were not left to abandonment and is now called 'Nations Park' (Parque das Nações). Used both during the day and at night, it offers numerous attractions: you can use its promenade by the river for a run, for a walk or just to sit and enjoy the view of Vasco da Gama Bridge; visit some of the pavilions that are still open like the Oceanarium, the Virtual Reality Pavilion, the Knowledge Pavilion, Macau Pavilion, attend live concerts in the Atlantic Pavilion; enjoy the cable car ride; cross the street and go shopping in the Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre; have an exquisite meal in some of the finest restaurants in town or just have a drink in one of the relaxed bars! As you can see, there is a choice for everyone.

The park was built with the general theme of "The oceans, a heritage for the future" and some 142 countries and international organizations participated. Today it offers a unique and exciting experience!

I hope you like it.
