I see in this modest public park adjacent to the Sants train station and our hotel, a reflection of Barcelona's commitment to visual excellence. Cutting edge beauty where least expected.

Our hotel was immediately next to this small park. There is a small lake and greenery which is welcome in a largely industrial area. Unfortunately there are fairground attractions (which did not seem to be used) immediately next to the park. This cheapens the area and spoils the atmosphere. On one of the nights we were there there was a... More

We passed by daily along our path from hotel to Sants station. Many families strolling in the park in the evening. It's more of a modern design park with dragon sculpture (as a playground for kids) & fountains. Nothing demands one's attention to divert their route to visit this park IMHO.

A perfect place for children to play and adults to walk or just soak the sun. The parque has a basket ball court, football area, table tennis, swimming pool, gym which are all free to access.

Dedicated to the industrial strength of the region, this park was constructed at the site of the old textile factory. The park was opened in 1985, designed by the Basque architect Luis Pena Ganchegui. Another Basque artist, Andres Nagel, is the author of a giant metal dragon, the largest among many sculptures in the park. The central attraction is a... More

This park is right next to the Sants train station and has some unusual modern art and sculptures. Nice change from the norm

The Parque de la Espana Industrial is an odd place. There's a large metal "sculpture" of a dragon which serves as a slide for children (but it's pretty filthy). There's what could be a lovely duck pond, but the water is sedentary and foul. There are interesting towers (too large to be street lights, too small to be lighthouses,...what were... More

One of the dirtiest places I've ever been to. The dragon slides were filled with urine and trash. The water had garbage in it. Fountains weren't working. Needed a shower after walking thru park. Several homeless sleeping there.

Very nice park, the fountains are lovely and add a little touch to the park. The park isn't too big, but is nice too just sit down and enjoy the views. Right next to bants train station so easy to reach.

Some great pieces of sculpture and design work including swimming pools and fountains. A giant slide that resembles a dragon for kids to play on. Well all those things are there but; the slide is used by people as a public toilet, so if you do go up the stairs for a slide down, the smell is unbearable and you... More
