“Pleasant on a sunny afternoon.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Very large park and several places serve light refreshments. Access the park behind the Prado or by the Cibeles fountain and Gate.

“Fun afternoon in the park”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We rented a row boat the small pond and spent 45 minutes rowing around. After, we stopped at a cafe with a view of the lake and had a beer. It was a nice break to the site seeing!

“Beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This is a beautiful park in the centre of the city. The boating lake is a great amenity. We enjoyed lunch from a stall to the right of this. More expensive than elsewhere in the city, but well worth it to soak up the rays and the park vibe.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

This park was HUGE and absolutely beautiful. It was very well kept, clean and tidy. There was plenty to do and see and loads of places to get a decent ice cream :) A good afternoon can be spent walking around the lake, playing in the maze or just playing a card game under a tree!
