This beautiful park is an oasis of calm and beauty in the center of madrid. There are many things to see including birds and a variety of fauna and flora. There is a mini lake and lots of paths to wander along.

Large park with lake and plenty of shade. Do not miss the crystal palace in the park as it is amazing. Plenty of food outlets but quality not the best and fairly expensive.

It doesn’t seem very deep and it looks very safe. More of a big pond than a lake, I think. Hope this helps! 😊
