We had our breakfast in this park (bought famous jamon in baguette) on our way from the stadium to Guggenheim. The park is pretty big, well manicured with lots of trees and flowers. Plenty of benches around the pond and circular colonnaded walkway.

This is the oldest park of Bilbao, plenty of old trees, nice walks, ducks and ponds, all in the heart of the city, next to the Gran Via/Main Street and the Fine Arts Museum

We enjoyed walking in this park, which sprawled only a 5-minute walk from our hotel. The beautifully maintained acreage shows off the largest green space in Bilbao. I found it to be a nice change from wandering along the narrow streets of the city's Old...More

You have to remember that Bilbao was an industrial city, focussed on the docks until the last 20 years or so. It therefore wonderful that this English-style park was created over 100 years ago, named after Doña Casilda Iturrizar who donated the land. The park...More

Doña Casilda is a must in Bilbao, a beautiful green area with a great lake and a playground. Nevertheless, I must advice to all visitors to keep an eye in their pockets and bags, since there are a lot of thieves and the local police...More

This park is a small green space in the city. it's nice to sit down for a moment and watch the people go by or listen to some music of street musicians.

Nice small park, not far from the Guggenheim museum. There are kids playgrounds, fountains with swans. But comparin to Barcelona's or Madrid's parks needs more care.

This park is on a long sloping site that includes 2 good size duck ponds, though one was drained for maintenance in August 2017. Plenty of trees, tropical & deciduous, large flowering shrubs and a brick ornamental pergola/ folly. The Euskaduna tram stop and massive...More

It’s a very nice, old European park that runs parallel to the Gran Via. Here you will find tall mature shade trees, statuaries and a large colonnade reminiscent of a Maxfield Parrish illustration. While not very crowded, it appeared to be a perfect choice for...More
