NYC Central Park a la Oviedo

I live a couple of blocks away and it is a joy to visit. Wonderful little park with many surprises and myriad of things to see/do if you take the time.

I now live in Oviedo. Came to Oviedo many years ago for a business meeting. I had to keep one of the attendees busy for a while and apart from the others, We ended up here. It was love at first sight....

A pleasant and popular green oasis
Jul 2019 • Friends
An extensive park which bridges between the old, busy city with its avenues, piazzas and shops and the more modern residential and office area, the layout is primarily 19th century, as can be seen from some of the classical urns and features, though it has been altered and added to over the years.

It has a number of different features including a duck pond, popular with children, playground, refreshment area and the like, and has various statues dotted around it, continuing the theme of public art that runs throught the city.

The Paseo de los Animos, running alongside the Uria, has artistic patterned designs in the paving, which not many people notice, plus a variety of food outlets.

Enjoyable to relax in and stroll through, some parts are in need of, or are receiving, some TLC.

HOUSE OF LA MAFALDA

Beautiful urban park with alleys, river walks and fountains. And, notably, the location of La Mafalda, the sad looking statue sitting on a bench. Took a great photo with a local little girl. Hope she sees it.

A bonus to staying in a hotel on the outskirts.
Oct 2018 • Couples
Our hotel offered a twenty minute walk into town, mostly through this wonderful and ever-interesting urban park.
On the first walk we found ourselves reading and admiring the multi-display of local student work, taking in a couple of the bronzes too. Over the next few trips into town we discovered the various zones in the park, from seating and promenading areas, to the statuary, the pleasing layout.
A thoroughly well designed slice of pleasure.

Beautiful park
Oct 2018 • Couples
Possibly the most beautiful and citizen-useful parks we have seen. Ther are hundreds of beautiful very mature trees. There are benches, and other places to sit, everywhere. There is a major children's library, a large children´s play area, an elaborate skateboard complex, concrete ping pong tables, a large fenced area where dogs can run free. The park is virtually free of litter.We haven't seen the whole park!

Lovely park to walk in or just sit. Many locals stroll during the evening. In the center of the old city.

Inspirational!
Jul 2018 • Couples
I feel so at peace in this beautiful park. It has some very interesting trees some of which are rare and have botanical labels. As a wheelchair user it is very very easy to get around and as an amateur artist I always find inspiration for some of my work.
It is situated between the medieval city of Oviedo and the modern shopping centre and where the more lively bistros and cafe are to be found. The perfect place to relax after sightseeing or shopping.

Oasis in the middle of Oviedo
May 2018 • Couples
So without any itinerary, we proceeded to walk west from our apartment and found ourselves in a park called Campo de San Francisco. Within its grounds were carefully manicured lawns and magnificent trees punctuated with old and new low key structures, examples of which are an ancient arch, modern sculptures, outdoor cafe, children’s playground, skateboard park, and hidden ponds populated by ducks and the ubiquitous pigeons. Each tree had an information placard that identified its genus and species much like a botanical garden. Its tranquil atmosphere stands in contrast to the traffic around its periphery. It was the perfect setting to have another cafe americano!
