Very nice park that stretches across the city. If your doing a lot of walking in this area, its a nice break from the major roadways. If you plan on working out in your hotels or whatever, it's worth walking/jogging and there are even signs posted on the path in km to measure your distance. Also we felt very safe... More

This is surely the best park in Europe. So long and in the middle of the city. Best thing to see in Valencia.

Largest urban garden in Spain -about 9 km long and 110 hectares. After the flood of 1957, the river Turia was diverted to the south of the city and instead Valencians put there green, magnificent gardens. Its route is dotted by many places of interest: the Gulliver Park, the CAC, the Bioparc, the Music Palace, the museum of Fine Arts...and... More

Once upon a time, it was a river here. Now it's a gren area, were you can sit, relax, play with you're kid, bike, skate, read, etc. If i would live here i would like this area, but as a tourist don't expect something spectacular to see. I like it because all the area is around 3-4m down from the... More

The perfect place for walking, running, riding a bicycle, skating and doing all kind of sports. As a matter of fact I have never seen so many people doing sport at the same time. There are football, basket and rugby grounds, ping pong tables, skate bowls, gym apparatus and so on. Besides, there is a gigantic Gulliver whose hair, legs,... More

Great passage in an old river, which connects parts of the city from the backend to the beaches. Its very nice to discover the city by bike using this passage!

You could literally spend days in this park, there's so much to do. Great place for a picnic and enjoying the sun and views! We played mini golf (it's free! But is terrible. Concrete surface and lots of jumps, balls just bounce off. Found it frustrating more than anything!)

When Valencia flooded back in the 1950s, few people could have imagined the changes that were about to happen. The river was redirected outside the city and this left the old riverbed without a function. Instead of turning it into a road they decided to leave a public amenity running through the city. There are loads of trees to shelter... More

The park is amazing a mass green oasis in the city. The kids love climbing all over gulliver. People watching is first class. It's great to see so many people exercising and enjoying the facilities whether it be 4 or 6 people bikes, running, using the outdoor gyms the place is alive. It's of course framed by old fashioned bridges... More
