A relaxing oasis in the middle of the city. We spent a snoozy few hours during the afternoon followed by a quick row on the boating pond. Don't pay the extortionate prices for ice cream at the kiosks as the parc is small enough to nip out to one of the many supermercats in the surrounding streets.

My husband and kids enjoyed the playgrounds and fountains of this large park while I lingered in the nearby Picasso museum. Great find.

This park is not mentioned in Barcelona's top 10 destinations and is not very much advertised, may be that is the reason it is so peaceful and nice. There is a lake with some water activities and the park is used by the local people to rest and kids to play. It is green and relaxing. If you'd like to... More

Near the colourful Arc de Triomf both places are to be visited, luckily my hotel was at a walking distance I did like the two of them and enjoyed sitting in the cafe trottoir of the place.

Parc de la Cuitedella is in fantastic location and situated next to the zoo, nice place to take a stroll after talking to the animals. There's a nice feel about this place, people relaxing, having a picnic, others juggling and playing games. Beautiful scenery and the fountain is amazing,

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...
