A great way to spend your afternoon whilst in Barcelona! It is a great park with a beautiful lake where you can rent a boat-canoe for a ride in it!!:) there is also a zoo inside the park but it is not worth the money! We totally recommend a visit!

This was a nice place to stumble upon. Beautiful fountain and plenty of green space. The people watching is great. A beautiful place to take in the local culture.

Great park in the very centre of Barcelona. Amaizing fountain, nice trees, flowers, monuments. Amazing place to read a book, take a lunch break, o just rest your legs and relax. You can rent a boat and take a ride on the large lake. Really worth to visit!

I have been to this parc, it is nothing great. It has monument in the middle and some fountains and water body. I wouldn't consider it an important place to visit, but if you have free time and don't mind a nice walk away from the traffic and noise of main city, it can be a nice place to spend... More

Visiting this park inspired me so much- everyone around was doing their own thing. Rollerskating, biking, friends hanging out, people reading books, others taking photos. The surroundings are beautiful and create a lovely atmosphere on a summer evening. The thick green grass, the tall trees, the peace that takes over (or at least did when i was there) yet there...

If you don't have time to go to Park Guell, come to Park Ciutadella where you can admire the water fountain, have a picnic in the park while listening to the sounds of bongos or barking dogs. Go boating around the lake or have a game of table tennis, you can even sunbathe here...

Came across the park by chance whilst exploring the city. Huge fountain has got to be seen and photographed. Acres of space and seats to lie out or simply stop a while and watch the world go by. For the more energetic there is a small boating lake where row boats can be hired.

My partner and i found this by accident while meandering through the streets. Had seen the park on the map and added it into our walk. I think it is perhaps the most wonderful fountain and cascade i have seen anywhere.

Parc de la Ciutadella has an incredible and majestic fountain...definitely a nice place to take pictures! However, it's a very busy place, crowded by tourists and locals who are usually going for a walk. You can find a lake,museums, Barcelona Zoo, the parliament house and the arc the triomf near by!

My husband and I stumbled upon the park by accident, it was beautiful and had a stunning monument with fountains. Would return if I have time
