We visited the park quite early in the morning, theres lots to see, the mammoth, flowers, fountains, childrens play area, art, the fountain and waterfall do come on around 11am so a too early visit is just not quite the same.

I wish I had known more about this park before we planned our trip. If I did I would probably plan to spend a full day in this area. It has something for everyone. Zoo, sculptures, beautiful gardens, water fountains, street entertainer, and lots of green. We spent an afternoon walking and relaxing here. I even took a nap on... More

This park is delightful, with lots of old and odd museums and cool walkways, that all come together is this massive, amazing fountain that is at least three storeys tall and can be walked up. If you're going to Barcelona and want to walk around and see the locals at play, this is definitely worth a visit.

Went this week with my wife and daughter. The park is massive and has plenty of open space and benches to sit for a picnic. There are plenty of fountains and statues and kids play area. I believe there is a zoo somewhere in the vicinity. Worth a visit if travelling with kids.

I visited Parc de la Ciutadella in Nov '14. Close to the Arc de Triomf metro station. A pretty park to have a walk around in on a sunny day, containing a lake, a monumental waterfall built in the 19th century and diverse flora. It is wheelchair friendly. There is a natural science museum and a zoo there too.

A free park to look around and with the amazing fountain at one end and the castle of the 3 dragons at another. A nice way to spend a lazy afternoon.
