  • The Park hosted the Universal Forum of cultures in 2004. It was a project of Elías Torres and José Antonio Martínez Lapeña that served to enhance the entire area which at that time had many factories obsolete. It is a vast but untapped, with little maintenance and unless there is an event, is not a place to visit. For the city, due to its location and cost that had, it could be much better.

  • Although it's name, it is not a park, just a place to walk or go around with the bike, besides watching the yachts and the sea, there is not too much to do here, maybe take some pictures if you like p...  more »
  • After visiting the Museu Blaum, we wandered a bit for the Forum. If you expect a park, meant as a playground, here's this is not it, there is a small playground 0-4 years bounded (but half the games are broken), an adventure trail with Tibetan bridges under a large canopy (but in February was closed, maybe open in spring/ Summer?), an enormous Esplanade of concrete and asphalt with an adjoining staircase type arena where evidently held events such as the Primavera Sound and other fairs. There is a very long walk to the Barceloneta, and is frequented on weekends mainly by runners, bikers and families with kids on bikes/stroller. Around the Museu Blau, the Telephone Palace, brand new hotels and palaces on the Diagonal from the futuristic design. And this surely is the peculiarity of the Forum.

  • Was here for the "La Merce" festival. Saw some great bands here, it's located near a metro stop. If you're American, if you buy a beer keep the cup they refill it.
  • I love coming here to escape from the crowded city, it's usually pretty quiet during the weekdays and it's a cool place to take pictures of the minimalist architecture. However if you are only here for a few days there are better things to visit.
  • Nice venue next to the beach. Went there for Primavera Sound, spent 4 days walking miles and miles. The venue is very spacious and has many different area's to enjoy various activities and live music when an event is held
  • Awesome venue for DGTL festival. Everything about it was cool, loads of food stalls and re-usable cups!
  • Big/huge space for any kind of activities.... and great place to swim when they finish the maintenance tasks.
