Amazing park. Just fantastic and a m a z i n g. Very well maintained, you can take a ride on the lake, visit the cristal palace and enjoy the sounds designed for the glass house. Fantastic. A place to visit for sure.

Don't go to Madrid without going here - it's just a short diversion in the route from the museums to the fancy shops in Salamanca. An oasis of calm in the heart of the bustle.

A great place for a stroll or any other type of relaxation on a nice day. There's a small lake with different birds (I think it's the first time I saw black swans) and a large one if you want to rent one of the rowing boats. Great for a picnic as well.

We were able to walk to Retiro Park from our hotel and we very much enjoyed our time there. The arches at the park entrance are called Puerta de Alcala and the impatiens flowers in front were stunning. There are great photo stops at the Palacio de Cristal and Monumento Alfonso XII that overlooks the lake where you can rent... More

Great place for a walk or even to ride a small romantic boat on the lake. The wide and clean areas are a plus!

Lovely and very large park in Madrid well worth a stroll and perhaps a boat ride! Musicians and families as well as picnicking. Be sure to see the small lake and pavilion... They rent boats. There may be bicycle rentals, but not sure. That would be nice there as well... Recommended for a relaxing hour or so...

Park features wonderful lake in the center, rows of trees, sidewalks for strolling with benches to relax. There is wonderful museum nearby in crystal palace. Retiro park is just across Prato museum and real palace. It has duck pond and boating.
