The park has an area of around 3 hectares (7.4 acres).[1] It houses the El Drago Milenario, the oldest and largest specimen of Dracaena draco (dragon tree) in existence,[2] and one of the symbols of Tenerife, estimated to be between 800 and 1,000 years old.[3]

It also has a variety of other plants that are endemic to Tenerife and the Canary Islands,[3] including younger specimens of Dracaena draco, cardoons, and tabaibas.[4] It also houses a winery and coal bunker, as well as a cave with a representation of a Guanche burial.[1]
