As a snake the Turia parc winds itself through the city. I should say, rent a bike, cycle through the 8 kilometres parc and have a stop wherever you feel like. There is a lot to see and to do, so never a dull moment

In 1957, a flooding from the river Turia killed hundreds of people and caused large damages. To prevent farther disasters like this, the flow of the river was changed, and deplaced out of the city center. The original bedding was turned into a fabulous park wit many playgrounds and sporting facilities. The park runs like a green snake thourough the whole towncenter. It is an a green oasis, fantastic for a walk. The original bridges are still there in all their historical glory and bringing you to important other city points such as the Royal Garden and the fantastic Museum of Art History.

What an amazing park! I live in manchester with very little green space so to have kilometers of beautiful park, gardens, fountains and sports pitches is incredible! I would move to Valencia just for this park.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This beautiful park is in old river bed. Well maintained, with fountains, paths for joggers and bikers. People have fantastic place to practice sports or just walk in much more pleasant place than crowdy street or city traffic.

Family friendly dry river bed and green space where the locals and tourists alike go to play sport, ride bikes, picnic or visit the little cafes.
