“A wonderful park in the middle of Madrid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This park is a wonderful place to spend the day. It has two lakes, one with rowing boats, plenty of paths to walk around the park, a beautiful rose garden and plenty of places to sit and have a drink or a meal and watch the people. And it is a good idea to take some bread and feed the fish, the ducks and the swans

“Best in the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This was my favorite stop in Madrid. Authentic park, great architecture, interesting to watch the locals, etc. There's also some food places, we didn't eat here though.

I would highly recommend giving yourself an hour or two to stroll through the park. There's a lot to see!

“Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Parque de Madrid is a very large park with nice paths and well defined areas. It is mostly shrubs and trees, not flowers like you would fins at the parks in a city like London. But it is a nice visit for a relaxing day. There are boat rides, a chess club, a café, and some monuments.
Great park for walking off all the tapas and beer also. Particularly lovely in the evening. Small cafes are dotted around the place. Recommended

“my favorite park in Madrid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

you find it all in Retiro, fountains, crystal palace, exhibition of art, sport center, rosebush and many other flowers, biking area, running and skting circuits, and even a library to enjoy reading if not on the grass under a tree you can book a magazine or bring your favorite one in the glass window library.
Coffee stores are located in different areas. You can even book a boat and row it in the lake or feed animals in the pond.
Children love to have fun in different playing areas of the park.
