“Visit only if you have time”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

A place to people watch especially on the weekend. Not much of a garden as it is very dry and brown

“a nice walking park”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Walked all thru the park on a weekday. It was very quiet and peaceful. Not many people around. Its not the kind of place you go to as an 'attraction' but I used it to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Madrid.

“Perfect afternoon.”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

In a very central location, with the park feeling, Retiro is the best place to relax in Madrid. Renting a rowing boat in the pond is for less than 5 Euros for 45 minutes and it is totally worth doing with friends or family. Have in mind the gypsies begging for money as there are stealing a lot and may ruin your nice visit.
