This is a great place within the city to be outdoors. I was impressed with the cleanliness and safety measures. We walked in total for 3.5 hours (at different days/increments) and still didn't see everything. The Crystal Palace was interesting to see. Many snack stands, runners, children and dogs! Lots of beautiful trees, flowers and gardens.

One of the most amazing parks I've ever visited. We went on a beautiful Saturday morning, where it seemed like half of Madrid was out to "promenade " Rollerblading is clearly the preferred mode of transport. Lovely cafes to sit and people watch . We hired a 4 man bike from a shop just outside the park. Great fun for... More

I loved this place! We got a lovely March morning for it and rented a row boat (E6 for 45mins) - on the lake, someone playing accordion, beautiful weather - you couldn't make it up. It was amazing (first sun in about 9mths for us!). Highly recommend and I imagine it gets very busy in the summer but at this... More

This park is easy to reach by subway! It's also pretty big... big enough for a decent stroll around, or just enjoy chilling there on the many benches or grass. Just avoid spots under trees as there will be bird poo. There is also a big lake where you can take a rowing boat although I didn't do it. Food... More

This is a very good Park. We could not enter to the museum as the timing of the entry was at 5.30PM and we have few days in Barcelona. We visited outside the Park and this park is full of Greenery and children love this place.
