Walked through the park while on a walking tour of Madrid. The park is huge. Covered most of the places in the park. A must see when going to Madrid. A good place to chill and unwind.

One of the "must-see" places in Madrid in my opinion. Well designed, with many interesting views. Possible to find nice activities, and possible to spend hours here.

Although Madrid is a big city, most sights are within walking distance. I would pick a relatively centrally located hotel and make my around either on foot or taxi. Even if more than half taxi drivers are not fluent in... More

We're planning to visit the park soon. Are there flower gardens in the park? Also, if we are riding a taxi to the park where should the taxi drop us off to have the shortest walk to the crystal palace? Traveling with a senior citizen so I'm trying to find the shortest route.
