It's been mentioned a lot about beauty of this place. It really is. Visited several times while in Barcelona. I would like to add that it's a great place for running (laps are about 0.8 - 2 km) Keep your eyes open and you'll see a lot of green parrots on trees. Choose a comfortable shoes for this walk. when... More

The "cherry on top of the cake" in this park is definitely the beautiful fountain/waterfall. There's also a small lake where you can rent a boat and have a romantic "cruise". The avenue going from the park to the Arc de Triomf is quite impressive as well. The Parliament and the two buildings across are well kept but the green... More

Start at the Arc De Triomf, walk down the line of Palms, cross the road and enter the park. Follow the path until you find the fountain and climb the stairs. Magic. There are plenty of other hidden gems within the park too - give this a good hour or so for its worth.

Free admission to a wonderful park. It was slighty difficult to find the waterfall as none of the signs suggested that. Glad i had the guide book with me otherwise I would have missed such an impressive waterfall and surprisingly is free as it must have cost somebody a lot of money to maintain. However do watch out, even today... More

Very nice park to relax, exercise, or mix it up with the locals. There are some interesting sculptures sporadically placed around the park and the Cascada Monumental in the northwestern corner of the park is an amazing sight. I also enjoyed the graffiti murals near the Castell dels Tres Dragons. The park is also in close proximity to the Gothic... More

The park is a very nice place to visit. It has a very beautiful fountain to ogle at. There is also a small lake with row boat facility to do a bit of show off or romantic spin or fun with kids. The air is filled with music, noise, people dancing, kids playing and very lifelike. Mostly a trip with... More

We went to see the Arc de Triomf and decided to walk through the park to get to the beach. It's a really nice place, very clean and well taken care of. We were just strolling down the alley, when we saw the magnificent fountain and an impressive monument! We stayed there longer than planned and took dozens of photos... More

If you've spent all day walking around Barcelona, this is a great place to rest your feet for a little bit. It's a beautiful park with some interesting sculptures, monuments, and landscaping. And lots of benches. (Note - There are a few people who will try to 'charge' you admission to enter certain parts of the park. Just walk past... More
