“Beautiful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This park is extremely big. It's very peaceful with palm trees and we even saw some tropical birds flying around. There is an amazing fountain, plus a zoo. Plenty of benches to rest on and read a book.

“Amazing Fountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Stayed opposite this park so had pleanty of visits,The fountain in the middle is amazing and worth the visit on it's own.There is also a giant life size stone mammoth and various other staues to see.The park also has orange groves and parrots flying about and nesting in mst of the trees.
If you walk through the park you come out near the arc de triomf which is worth seeing as well.
The park is also home to the zoo and 5 minutes from the train station.

“Beautiful park, worth a visit - and it's free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Gorgeous park, full of interesting things to see and right by the Arc de Triomph. Absolutely worth a visit.
You could stroll through the park, or sit on one of the grassy areas or one of the many benches taking in the scenery.

“Parc”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Great place to just walk around, take children to play, play ping-pong, lay down and enjoy the sun during summer. And the best of it is the cascade, great place for a photo.

“Sunday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

the park has the Parliment of Catalunya, the Zoo, The Arc de Triomf and the most amazing and beautiful fountain in it. when i walked through there were several locals playing table tennis and others going for a morning jog, this seems to be a place where locals spend their sunday mornings relaxing.
