Came across this park slightly by accident but what a find it was. It was a lovely warm day in Barcelona and it was lovely to wander through here and enjoy the scenery while Barcelona bustled away in the background. There is something to see for everyone here and it's well worth a relaxing hour away from the city.

A great park with great people and a zoo at the bottom. Circus performers abound, families, lovers, joggers, bubble blowers, and all manner of good people. Take a peaceful stroll.

Perfect park for a lazy day. Many locals also hang around here what makes it a great spot for hobby anthropologists. ;)

This is one of the best places in Barcelona to relax for a bit. It's big enough that you wont have the feeling that you're in the middle of a sprawling metropolis. It's very beautiful indeed and has multiple nice attractions contained within. The big fountain being the highlight of it all.

If you're visiting Barcelona and you have still a lot of things to visit you can skip this park. We didn't visit the zoo, just the area around it: if you have children visit the park instead, there is a big big big mammoth statue!

I visited this park on a sunny day and really loved it: there's plenty of shaded areas and people from Barcelona clearly love this park and look after it.

Very well maintained and excellent park in the city. Excellent way to use your afternoon and also see the impressive fountain in the middle of the Park. In walking distance to the Victory gate. Enjoy

This park is active with joggers, picnic-ers, and just plain good old Sunday afternoon activities. We watched a street-dancing group, and an individual who 'rode' inside a hoop! There were dogs and children and generally a satisfying, relaxing walk. It is adjacent to the Zoo, and Three Dragons Museum. Enjoyed our visit!
