“Lovely park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

This is a lovely park, with two parts, tall imposing trees providing shade, and a well maintained garden with plenty of benches and flowered beds, with a cage homing peacocks and a fountain with fish. Lovely shaded place and great for a picnic. There is also a free car park by the river so we parked here, picnicked and then walked into town.
It was quiet when we were here, just families milling about enjoying the serenity.
(Our landlady told us not to come here at night though which sounds ominous!)

“Oasis of peace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Initially we entered this city park for 30 minutes to take shelter from the heat of a July afternoon, but ended up spending much of the afternoon there. A huge variety of flowers, shrubs, plants and ponds complement the magnificent canopy of trees. It was a shock to step out again into the bustle of Girona, but nice to remember that it is such a short walk from any part of the city centre.

“All those trees!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Lovely oasis in the city. Seemed to be in two parts - the Place de Boixes which had 2500 plane trees, like a sort of woody cathedral (lovely in the autumn when we went), and a really pretty and well laid out more formal park with a little river running thru. It was so peaceful and uncrowded we ended up calling in for an hour or so every day.

“Shady place for sunny days”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Nice and quiet parc, leafy and with bizarre shapes of trees, think gaudi style.
Only minus is ftrying to find an exit without jumping over a little canl to go into town.

“Devesa Park Girona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

A great place for a stroll in the shade of the tallest plane trees in Spain. Always something to see or do; you can be active and jog, walk etc or passive and watch, snooze or read...
