“Nice place to run/walk”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

A very large park in the old riverbed of the Turia River. If you are a big runner or walker and want a place to run/walk this is a great place to do that. Also a great place to sit down in a patch of grass and relax for a bit.

“Good for the lost”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The park is huge. It would take me an entire day to walk in one direction from the beginning to end. I mostly ventured near the City of Art section, pass Gulliver. I found the park to be very unique. Seemed safe to walk about by yourself. Very good use of public space. I used it as a landmark to find my bearings while touring around Valencia.

“A Phenomenon”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I visited in November 2011 when I was celebrating my 70th birthday.
One of the nicest things about Valencia is the Park that has evolved from the redirection of the River Turia on to another course. If you wish to have an energetic session or two, the long straights that have evolved out of the riverbase, allows you the necessary mileage for your daily bike ride/ jog/run/race against time. If not so energetic, the same feature allows you long quiet walks on the pathways and roadways amongst indigenous plants, stop and watch various sports activities, or even observation of the old "riverside " buildings and bridges. As you walk around the city's original eastern margin, you can always cut back into the city centre with the main square and the famous gates/doors of the magnificent cathedral.

“Innovative use of urban space”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The old river bed has been turned into a very interesting, multi purpose park. Walking, running and cycling is encouraged. Football coaching areas, skateboarding areas are provided. It is a pleasant walk with different garden designs and water features along the way. We walked to the City of Arts and Sciences along this way. A must see.
More cafes would be useful.
