  • After a winter in which Bilbao Sun, has not been this afternoon, with an atmosphere of 18 degrees, I have gone through the Park (small, all the people of Bilbao of a certain age have gone and we have called it the Park's ducks) to go to the Center , and I've been a bit ecstatic, first with the colors bright green shoots starting to emerge, and on the other, with the smell of the damp earth when it starts to warm. Another experience. But those who come off well can enjoy a stroll with time along curved paths paths to not get in a straight line, down to the pond where still today live ducks, geese and swans... upload to the majestic pergola, from where, looking at the top through the arb Oles, will see the end of the slender Tower of César Pelli... You will find people doing sport, walking, warming up in a bank located in the Sun, going from one place to another in the city... few tourists, that's Park

  • I really like walking through this park, this downtown and although in the Centre of the city there is no noise of traffic. There are several ponds and in one of them there are ducks and peacocks. It is worth walking through this park, take a NAP or enjoy a picnic.

  • popularly known by this name by the divided into two central pond, it is a place of leisure for an afternoon with the family, especially if you have young children. They will have fun throwing bread to the ducks or other birds. What I like about this park is its slope, and relief, of trails down... contrary to other European parks that are more Plains. Extended to Highway won square meters over the past few decades. People also highlights the pergola, at the top, opposite the Palace of congresses and exhibitions Euskalduna. It has a playground with swings accessing hand left and sport courts to the right. When I was a kid (1980) tricycles are rented and sold waffles

  • Casilda Iturrizar Park, is a municipal park of Bilbao. It is located in the District of Abando, on the grounds of the District of Abando which the benefactress Casilda Iturrizar, then donated his name. The architect was Ricardo Bastida and engineer Juan de Eguiraun. It is a garden of English style whose construction began in 1907. The Park was the unique green city lung until very recent years. It currently has with different attractions, like the pond which is home to various species of ducks, swans and peacocks (what conferred the nickname of "parque de los Patos"). Another element is the pergola, and surrounding the cybernetic fountain, offering water, light and sound shows currently only it's a typical ornamental fountain. The Museum of fine arts of Bilbao was built entirely within the Park in the 1940's.
