This park is more free-form than Retiro, but very attractive in its own way. Walk in the Olive Tree groves, enjoy the amusement park, go to the Zoo, but be sure to relax and have coffee or a meal at any of the open air cafes next to the lake. Beautiful views of majestic Madrid on the hillside nearby.

The is a giant park (former hunting ground of the king) right next to the downtown core. You can walk there, take a cable car, or the metro. Between Fall to Spring this is a great relaxing place to come and stroll around, take a bike ride (challenge yourself to a couple of laps of the Triathlon route), or simply... More

Beautiful park especially when you go there by bike. Prepare yourself for a workout because it is a very mountainous area.

A great place, huge park, amazing to take a walk, to organize picnics during spring and summer time, for jogging and training and basically the perfect spot to spend a family weekend.

We went on the cable car which was very good.The park is vast but not that pretty.Trying to find our way out of the park was difficult as sign posting was very poor and it was a long walk to the metro station.

Well worth queuing for the cable car ride across Casa de Campo Park. The park itself is huge (over 1700 hectares) and includes its own theme park, zoo and lake. Great views from the cable cars that cross it, taking over 10 minutes each way. The park itself is free and the cable car is only a few euros

We went for a walk near the lake and had lunch in a restaurant near the lake. I do not remember the name of the restaurant but the meat and the fish was excellent although very expensive. The place and the lake was very nice but hot. I suppose it is better to visit it in autumn or spring or... More

If you skip the more troden on areas you can go for hours long hikes right in the heart of Madrid. We go for hikes and for meals in the restaurants arround the pond (not so good) on a regular basis.

What a great way to escape the bustle of the city centre - who'd believe that you could find this oasis of peace and quiet with lots of open space in the city! It's a lot less of a tourist trap than the Retiro and you could almost believe you were well out of the city! Worth a visit if... More
