“Mountain Biking Paradise”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Do you like the outdoors?
Do you like mountain biking?
If so, come to this park! It's amazing, with hundreds of tracks for kids to intermediate and maybe one or two short extreme down hill parts.

You can hire bikes from a place called mtbmadrid.es which is about 4km from the main park entrance. Its EUR25 a day and you get a Mountain Bike.

“great park”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

this park is breathtaking . not as popular as the beautiful retiro park due to it being far from the city center. but it can only become more popular in time as the surrounding area becomes more populated. its twice the suze of the retiro park.

“Wonderful park to be busy and relax”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Visited today for the first time with our two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs. Wonderful grass areas, shady trees where you can walk / relax / picnic. Great cycling and walking routes. The dog area is great, quite big, but gets a bit hot, the trees are still a little bit small. There is water for the dogs in that area, but nowhere else we could see. Also, bring small change to buy water / other drinks / snacks, it is all machines, no little shops. Would highly recommend for other dog lovers!

“Improving with age despite brutalist concrete features”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The first time I set eyes on this park three years ago, I could scarce believe the hideousness of the concrete water features and steelwork, the frequent signs of poor construction work, and haphazard surfacing that abounds everywhere. And yet, and yet...
Over time it has grown on me. In a city with few other green spaces - albeit they can be very good - this is a huge park that enables running, cycling, picnicking, kite flying and even walking if you're prepared to cover a good distance. The trees are growing well and the amount of shade and visual contrast is increasing. Facilities are few, simple and far between; a cold drink, crisps and ice cream is as much as you'll find in summer and only drinks machines in winter.
If you're visiting Madrid then the Retiro or the new Madrid Rio park are easier to get to and both very well worth a visit in their own right. But if you have more time or live here, then this is worth exploring.
