Since its opening in the mid-19th century, Ciutadella Park has remained one of the most popular green areas in the city. The sprawling park covers 280,000 sq m (70 acres), with a manmade lake, a zoo, sporting areas, the Parliament of Catalonia building, museums, and Josep Fontserè's iconic fountain. Travel down the garden paths that ribbon through the foliage, or stay on the pathways where you'll see performers practicing on a tightrope, juggling, or playing music. Small signs at the base of the trees and plants label the park's different types of vegetation.

Ciutadella Park Reviews
Another stop on our bike tour of Barcelona bought us from the Arc de Triomf to this park and in particular the excellent water feature which is impressive in both size and appearence and I'm... more »
This park is lovely for a stroll - it's not particularly big but it is picturesque. I love the parakeets throughout and the central fountain. On a sunny day its a nice place to while away an hour or..... more »
We love this park it’s really big and as it’s a bit out of the main part of the city it seem to be more used by local Spanish than tourists. You could spend a whole day there there’s a couple of... more »
It is indeed a beautiful park, quite green, lots of people coming to chill or with children to have fun, a public space that everyone can enjoy. I had a good time but I have to admit that for the biggest green park in Barcelona it isn't big enough and would have preferred to have pavement on the way but this is not an issue. Worth coming to take some pictures and enjoy yourself
Good place to relax and spend time with family, friends. I cannot say that this is must visit because of its beauty, but if you stay in the city for several days/weeks to spend evening in this park is really a good option. Can relax and enjoy.
What a gorgeous place to rest from a long day visiting Barcelona. With a lake in the middle and a really nice fountain alongside the big monument and stairs. If you're a girl and got yourself a photographer as your travel partner I would say "get a really nice and long dress (I would say white, red or even blue) and go to those stairs make a mini session 😁📸
Great place for people watching. A very lively but chilled park, full of people practising their skills, such as juggling, tight rope walking, gymnastics, musicians practising, boating and groups doing activities. There's some beautiful architecture and a fairly impressive display of coloured fountains 'dancing to music' on occasion. Don't miss the waterfowl and the parakeets, both in abundance. There are also street vendors selling their wares but they aren't intrusive like some other areas. Thoroughly recommended. 😉
Gorgeous park, with a some lovely buildings in it. Lots of grassy areas, and good facilities. There are lots of benches, but there's just the grass too if you wanna kick back! Don't buy anything from the hawkers, but you'll love the vibe of the place, lots of people just chilling with friends and playing games etc.
