A magnificently park right in the middle of the city, and we were lucky, just two blocks from our hotel in the Salamanca neighborhood. The park is really beautiful with so many things to see, fountains, beautiful trees and a nice lake with a backdrop that shows what a beautiful place this is. And the location makes it even better,... More

I love this park. The landscaping is beautiful. Great place to walk, run, or just breathe. You can grab a quick snack at one of the many food stands (try the churros with chocolate) or just peace out. I was traveling with lots of sites to see; wish I had time to enjoy this site more. Don't miss this one.

We were in Madrid for 3 weeks and went every day. There are so many different sides to the park- the peacocks, the fitness area, the grand monument on the pond.

Very pleasant atmosphere, generally quite clean. It's nice to walk near the lake, and even go on a boat if you wish.
