The park was very pleasant and relaxing, especially after Sagrada Familia. There is a boating lake, zoo, large fountain, all-weather table tennis tables and a refreshment kiosk. I also understand that there is a museum, although we didn't see it.

Oasis in the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, this park has beautiful fountains, statues and one wonderful water fall. Is a plce not to be missed in any sense. Also provides wide locations for outdoors activities. Very nice.

A very nice park located near the Arc triumph. It has lots of space to walk, a few attractions and a lagoon where you can rent a boat.

If you enter from north, coming from the Passeig de Lluis Companys, the first thing you see is the Three Dragons Castle... Then the atmosphere of this park remains the same. You'll find the unexpected and curious here. Overall a very nice park, that contains many other things to see, like the Mammuth statue, the Monumental Waterfall, the Catalan parliament,... More

The park de la ciutadella is a very relaxing place, it's big and really nice to run or exercise. It's really nice when it's hot becaus there are a lot of shadowed lawn. There is also a zoo for children.

A very nice place to visit on a hot day. The back of the park houses the zoo but it's a nice park to have a walk around with plenty of shady places to rest on a hot day. Worth a visit for the fountains alone.

Loved this park we came here twice as it is so nice and relaxing, also went on the little rowing boats on the lake further down 6 euros. I don't recommend the cafe there as it wasn't very nice at all😷 so take food would be best or have a picnic

Some of the park area were off limits due to preperations for a festival. The fountains were turned off because of work being done in preperation for the festival. Still a good place to go and relax.
