I come from Montreal and live next to three major nature parks. This was intriguing by it`s size, number of visitors and structure. Still, if you want to go a small boat on the man-made lake, be ready for a crowd. Just watch them try to steer by and laugh.

We happened on this somewhat by accident as we were walking from Reina Sophia to The Prado--it was wonderful. We ate at a little cafe there--the food was good, the people were entertaining. Reminded me of Central Park in New York.

Picnicking, jogging, bike riding, strolling - it's all there! Good for resting after the museums and good for people watching too!
