I walked to the river at the back of the royal palace and there, at the other site of the river, begins a big park, the Casa de Campo. Actualy you can walk from the city center into a countryside landscape: that is unique. I walked a morning into the park. There were not many people, even at the lake.... More

I have visited the Casa De Campo Madrid Zoo a few times and love it everytime I go.. the metro takes you to Casa De Campo metro and it is 10-15 minutes walk from there.. I love Zoos so loved this and had a great day in the sun.

I visited Casa de Campo over the San Isidro festivities in May. Whilst the centre of Madrid was alive with lot's of things going on I decided to take the metro to Principe Pio and then a 10 minute walk up the hill brought me to the cable car station. 4 euros 1 way or 11 euros return -- I... More

Just on the outskirt of downtown Madrid, you can get here taking the Madrid Teleferic for about $5 Euros roundtrip, great place to relax by the lake with some wine and tapas!

If you begin to feel closed in my the sprawling metropolis that is Madrid then head to this nearby get away. It was nice to walk around the lake on a comfortable Saturday afternoon with the locals and their children. We watched the boaters in the lake while having excellent Tapas and beer and a lakeside restaurant. There are beautiful... More

Grab yourself some nibbles and wine and catch the cable car to the park. Only a 11 minute trip from the city centre but a great place to "Chillax" away from the city hubbub.

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.
