Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends,

Sunday was very sunny day with warm temperatures.

Like many other people I used the opportunity to enjoy the sun by walking in the Park of Nations in Lisbon.

Many foreigners registered the best places. I liked the way as these tourists assayed its photos

In the WS you can enjoy a different view of this waterfalls

Parque das Nações (English: Nations' Park) is a leisure, commercial and residential area in Lisbon, Portugal. It covers an extensive area in northeastern Lisbon next to the Tagus estuary, formerly used for mainly industrial purposes. The area underwent a tremendous transformation in the 1990s when it was chosen as the location for the Expo '98 World Exhibition. After the exhibition, the area got its current name (although it is not uncommon for the Portuguese to still refer to it as "Expo"), and more transformations occurred such as the new Vasco da Gama shopping mall, the Lisbon's International Fair complex, hotels and many new office and residential buildings. Many attractions built for the Expo '98 remained and keep drawing visitors, such as the Oceanarium, one of the world's biggest aquariums. An estimated 15.000 people currently live in the Nations' Park, which is halved between the Lisbon and Loures municipalities, effectively splitting the local government of the area. There is a movement of citizens requesting the Lisbon's half to annex the one belonging to Loures, thereby integrating the entire area within the Lisbon municipality.

Parque das Nações (Nederlands: Park der Naties) is een nieuwe wijk in het oosten van Lissabon, die ter gelegenheid van de Expo 98 werd gebouwd. Het ligt aan de Taag. Het gebied dient vooral als vrijetijdsgebied, zakencentrum en woongebied. Het gebied werd in de jaren '90 aangewezen als ontwikkelingsgebied en sindsdien wordt er hevig gebouwd in dit district. Het wordt ook wel hét nieuwe stadsdeel van Lissabon genoemd (de Portugezen zelf noemen het Oriente of Expo) en het ligt deels in de gemeente Loures. Er wonen ongeveer 15.000 mensen in het gebied.

Le Parque das Nações, anciennement Zona de Intervenção da Expo, est le quartier de Lisbonne où s'est tenue l'Exposition Universelle de 1998.
Elle comprend également toute la zone sous administration de la SA ParqueExpo. Cette zone est devenue un centre d'activités culturelles et un nouveau quartier de la ville. La population est estimée entre 15 000 et 25 000 habitants. Cette zone située à l'est de la ville était dans les années 1990 une zone industrielle. Elle trouva un nouvel essor suite au projet d'urbanisation et de requalification urbaine, avec des bâtiments de style contemporain. From Wikipedia
