The Pilas Municipal Park opened in 1987 and has an area of 60,000 m2. It is the green lung of the town with more than 130 species of trees and bushes and an enormously varied landscape all year round. It has a unique structure. It was designed as an English garden with two large lakes of 500 and 600 m2, respectively, and a 110 metres long stream.

The park has a large entrance gate and three side gates that define and create unevenly shaped spaces, including the central walkway, aligned with large Washington palms and aromatic plants on the sides. The central square has a fountain which replicates the one in the Patio de los Leones of the Alhambra in Granada. This square also has orange trees, a pergola and an aromatic garden with a large fountain at the rear.

There is also a remarkable space roofed with an iron structure brought from the old market of Pilas. Now, it houses the Torre del Rey association. The park also has an area with children’s playground, an aviary and other spaces for animals. The lakes are home to ducks and geese, turtles, fish, amphibians and birds. It is easy to see in this green space a diverse birdlife, such as Iberian magpies, European goldfinches, white wagtails, greenfinches, turtledoves, mallards, helmeted guineafowls and storks.
