The ornamental garden of native flora of the Visitors Centre "Telesforo Bravo" contains a collection of over 800 plants, which belong to 80 species of native flora, all of them present in the island of Tenerife. The garden has a length of 6,000 m 2 and has a trail that allows access to the different plant communities of the Island of Tenerife, which are displayed in it. This trail has a total of 366 meters long, being a significant part of it accessible to visitors with reduced mobility.
The Visitors Centre of El Portillo is a resource of great interest and attraction for those who visit the park on their account and for guides who lead organized groups. Here, an interpretation is given of the relationship between the living things and their environment. The general aspects of geology, landscape and climate of the park are interpreted.
The botanical garden surrounding the centre of El Portillo completes the offer of this informative equipment, since in it can be seen a wide sample of the plant species found in the high canary mountain, even some that cannot be seen in the habitual journeys through the park. It consists of more than 1000 meters of path, of which half are suitable for people with mobility problems.
The Visitors Centre of Cañada Blanca (next to the Parador) offers an interpretation of the interaction man - environment and shows the evolution of the different ways of life in Las Cañadas throughout history, as well as the use that was made of the environment and its influence on the landscape. A special section is dedicated to the guanche culture (the culture of the aboriginal inhabitants of the island).
The Museum of Pastor Juan Évora, in Boca de Tauce, includes an exhibition of the way of life of the goatherds in the park and will complete, in the future, the set of resources for the interpretation of the heritage.
There are also four information points distributed in strategic locations in the park, where the visitor can go to clear his doubts.
