is a very nice parc, even if sometimes too much people around.. there is many people doing yoga, acroyoga, acrobatic silks, jungle, hula hop, marcial arts, training, playing some instrument or singing. lot of people do also picnic there or simply relax.

Big, spacious park. I thought it was relatively clean as well. Definitely worth walking through on a nice afternoon.

Parc de la Ciutadella, located on the heart of Passeig del Born is one of my favourite places in town. Realxing and free, is one of the best places to go for a walk or some sport in Barcelona!

This park is a beautiful place to relax, have a picnic, go for a stroll, or simply people-watch. It's full of people without feeling crowded, and you get to enjoy the scenery and quiet. There are nice sculptures and fountains, and it's right next to...More

If you live in a city like Moscow, where you have plenty of big and very well organized parks, you would be very surprised why this location is considered as a destination: quite small with very few entertainment areas for kids (which are very simple...More

We walked thru this park after the gothic quarter on a Sunday afternoon, and were pleasantly surprised at how uncrowded it was! And it is a gem... the water fountain is so beautiful. I highly recommend that this park is included in your Barcelona itinerary.

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

No there is no pool here. It's more of a botanical garden with trees, lawns etc.
