La Isla Riverside Park
An idyllic natural setting on the banks of the Alagón River that combines nature with sports and gastronomy with leisure in the City of Coria.
The adaptation of the southern appearance of the city is corroborated by the proposal of the project for the creation of a Paseo—or Walkway—on La Isla, in 1835, at the initiative of the then magistrate Juan Muñoz García. It was later expanded in 1861, by order of Mayor Julián Gutiérrez, through a new urban planning that concluded the previous tree planting, by levelling the surface of the land along its route, and the placement of benches. Its latest remodelling has been carried out by Mayor José Manuel García Ballestero in the 2020-2021 biennium.
Today, the Paseo Fluvial de La Isla has become an idyllic natural setting on the banks of the Alagón River, frequented by the locals and the tourists alike, as it combines the natural beauty of its riverside forests with aquatic and outdoor sports, and the gastronomy with leisure through the numerous accommodations and eateries located on both banks of this river.
