Retiro Park is an incredible place to explore and escape the hustle and hubris of Madrid - the highlights for me were the glass palace plus the lake with all the boats and the incredible centre-piece. Also check out the art museum plus all the turtles in the pond immediately behind the Glass Palace

The Retiro gardens, monuments, paths and trees are sleek yet magnificent. It is great to get lost in the park, briefly, and then return to reflect on the surrounding beauty. The place is magnificent and just blocks from the Prado and other great little location perks. Add an hour or so onto your trip to the museum and go here.

Here you can find a nice park and a very large one. The pictures here are awsome especially at the sunset. You can walk, bike or rollerskating.

Wow!
And I thought Central Park was the ultimate place to beat the city heat! The Retiro just keeps on giving - just lose yourself in the park for a couple of hours....well worth it.
