This park is referred to as an English park because of its gently rolling slopes. I'm English but I didn't really notice that the park was! However, the park was very beautiful even in winter. It has to be one of the nicest places in the city in the summer. There is a big fountain in the centre of the... More

This park is very close to Guggenheim Musume and Moyua square. We took metro in to Moyua stop, head west to the Casilda park and then make our way to the Puente De Deustu st, towards the bridge. The park is very pretty to walk around, 30min to 60 is enough for a quick visit. I would suggest walking towards... More

This park makes for good people watching on the Sunday (avoir siesta time). Admire the nicely dressed children, watch the ducks. And let your children play in the popular playing ground.

After a long hike down the Gran Via this is the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by for a while. On the far side of the park is a convenient tram stop which takes you back along the river to the old part of the city, past the Guggenheim.

Lots of benches to rest on, and some nice fountains and a place to feed the ducks. Most people in Bilbao seem to own a dog, and let them run free around the park , which is not to everyones pleasure!

This park was dripping with wisteria and willows. It felt like a temperate rainforest, with so much green and so much in bloom. It's beautiful.

Dona Casilda park has benches under the trees so you can rest in the shade when the afternoon is hot. There's also a little duck pond with some quite big ducks, who will entertain you with a fight or some beak-to-beak wing splashing. When you are refreshed, you can walk over the bridge with a great view of the Guggenheim.
