Right across from the Prado Museum, it is a great place to sit and relax and do a little European people watching!

The park is centrally situated. You have a metro Station very close by.
It's huge and you have an amazing lake inside with lots of fishes and ducks, where you can do kayaking or boating. It's very green and amazing to walk around during summer. You can see hundred of people jogging, doing yoga in open air, taking your dog for a walk or just sitting and having a good talk.
It's very green and peaceful. One of the place I recommend to go in Spain if you're a nature or park lover.
You can find some small shops to buy some snacks or juice or grab something to eat.

Great to visit but it's no Hyde or Central Park. Still, worth putting on your list unless you are pressed for time.

Absolutely loved this park. It was so big, we went back day after day to see a different part. It was very varied, from coffee shops, watching people skate, gardens, crystal palace, boating lakes and ponds. Just so peaceful and beautiful. We decided to do what the locals were doing and just lie on the grass and have a siesta in the shade one day.

Thoroughly recommend it. A must for any trip to Madrid.

A really relaxed park, perfect for a stroll, and a really pleasant lake on which you can hire a boat, perfect.
