We organized a couple of outdoor activities in the park and people had lots of fun. The only thing that I didn't quite like was the lack of grass in some places, which ended up making my clothes a bit dirty.

The reviews of this park didn't disappoint, even though it was raining and cold the day of our visit. Beautiful, nice oasis to relax for a break away from the crowded bustling streets and malls. Definitely recommend others to take an our break, and take a nice stroll with your loved one (s).

This is a place for nice walks in beautiful gardens. The place is huge and has many nice areas. There are many terraces to relax and enjoy drinks and coffees. And if you feel like it, you can rent a boat and go rowing in the small lake

This is a large park in the heart of Madrid. You can walk or jog and there are lots of little trails and areas you can wander off to. There is a large lake where you can rent a little paddle boat and take in the sights. There are a number of little cafes and kiosks where you can sit... More

While visiting my nephew we went to the park for a winter walk and some tostadas. It was a chilly morning and we sat outside looking at the lovely autumn colours in the trees. It's a huge and beautiful park, clean and tidy and well kept. Worth a visit for sure.

this place is big so bring a map! on the upside it's just a short walk from the Prado museum and tons of other major attractions in the area, so wherever you go in or come out you'll end up by something great. I love the reflecting pool area, it's such a cute idea. The paddle boats were still out... More

A shady place to watch the world go by or have a coffee or take a boat out in the boating lake. There is not much of the Royal palace left just a couple of plain building but the glass conservatory is a riot of glass and iron.
