We visited this park soon after arriving in Madrid. It was a Saturday evening and the park was absolutely rammed. The boating lake was really busy and all the pathways were full of people, taking advantage of the April sunshine. We found it a haven...More

I was thinking that no park could be as nice as Central Park in NYC, but Retiro park is just as nice. It seems to be a little more structured and pristine. It seems like trees and plants are planted in specific places to make...More

Great place for sports and picnic! Be aware, it is closed during the night and the statues are not light the way you google.

The park is both relaxing and energizing, with monuments, street performers, gardens, people-watching and rentable rowboats.

Post-half marathon, this was a great place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon - you can walk, sit, eat, read - a superb park and respite from busy city walking if that’s what you’re looking for.

They did not give a time for it to reopen and based on past reviews it seems like it has been closed many days if not a couple weeks.
