    Impriscendible take a stroll through this small park that has its charm. Its Lake with different species of ducks, geese, swans... and his little square with fountain are very relaxing :)

  • Very beautiful parc a great place to feel in nature in the middle of the city. Really peaceful place I have loved it. Its nickname is "el parque de los patos" translated by the parc of ducks. There are some Swan and ducks and it is well cared.
  • Busy but peaceful park. Ice cream shop and cafe.
  • Naturally, the weather will determine your experience, but the park was incredible tranquil and relaxing when I visited.
  • A wonderful selection of trees and impeccably looked after. A gem!
  • Great place to picnic.

Where to stay in Bilbao

Thanks to the Bilbao's safe and newly renovated metro system, all neighborhoods are any easy commute regardless of the city's characteristic rainy weather. The Casco Antiguo, or old quarter, is undoubtedly the heart of the city's and best place for trying the famous "pintxos" or small appetizers. Small boutique hotels and family-owned pensions provide affordable and convenient accommodation for those wishing to get to know this picturesque district. If you prefer a more tranquil experience away from the lively bar culture characteristic of the old quarter you might wish to stay in one of the many hotels that line the beautiful Nervión River leading down from the historical district to the Guggenheim museum.
