So, I worked as a flight attendant for a little over a year in 2011. And the only destination I went to was Madrid. I went there something like 30 times in that year....so I think I got to know the city pretty well. I probably should have written this review years ago, but I'm just now getting around to it.

I loved going to the park. The boats were always fun and always out...in the winter and in the summer. On the hot summer days you will probably have to wait in line for the boat...but it never took all that long. And then in the winter...no wait at all.

I loved strolling through the park....there a few little stops for snacks or water. And lots of good picture opportunities. It's a pretty big park so try not to get too lost. The good thing about Madrid is...even when you do get a little lost you can always find a metro entrance eventually. :) Hope this review was helpful...and it was my favorite things to do in Madrid.

When the temperature reaches +35C spend a few hours walking in the pleasant park. The atmosphere is wonderfully relaxing.

Having visited twice I still have only seen a small part of this huge and well maintained park, but would recommend it to anyone! Nice fountains, welcome shade, good buzz, places to stretch out and sun bathe and cafes for refreshments.

A large park to take a walk, jog, or ride a bike or sit to enjoy the scenery,people watch, enjoy a snack and/or beverages. Watching people feed popcorn to the fish in the lake was wild!!!
