Very nice and well maintained park. Nice for taking long walks and also good for running. Because is not paved there is a lot of dust, so if you want to take a walk, don't go into your sandals :)

Beautiful park situated 5 min walk from Arc De Triomf. Plenty of space both on the benches and the grassed areas. Convincingly situated fast food shop for refreshments and food. Great views.

This huge park is at the base of the mountain and features some spectacular fountains and staircases. Best to walk down, but note there are some good escalators to take you to the top.

This is a nice cut through to the arc. There are boats in the middle you can row near the fountain. Lots of little walkways and close to the zoo. Free entry so have a look if in area at the park .

On my visit in October the gardens and the Josep Fontserè designed fountain appeared a little shabby and unkempt, perhaps as a result of municipal cutbacks. Nevertheless I enjoyed my walk through it and it had a "community" feel about it; school children doing exercises...More

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.

Opposite the fountain within the park there is a small bar that serves cold drinks and light bites. Perfect for refreshing yourself or perhaps having a light bite I.e a sandwich and a drink. Chairs and tables are also... More
