  • A beautiful park just a short walk from El Molinón and not too far from the most beautiful beaches of Gijón and the city centre. This is a fairly large public garden and several trails that allow to observe various works of art and a large pond with many species of colorful birds and other animals. There are several peacocks which are free to wander around the Park, a bit like at the Zoo in Rome. If you're lucky, you can admire the famous male specimens wheel "courting" the female ones! And all this without spending a penny, for everyone.

  • I was really surprised. I wanted to take a walk to lower food and stayed close. It is a pretty big Park, so you can walk a while quietly. In addition, there is an area where there is a considerable variety of birds (more and less exotic, a bit of everything), a pigeon and a small corral where there are chickens, etc. It surprised me and I stayed a while observing different birds. In addition, a gentleman told me that it could give them eating, which was confirmed to me since, approached me bars, some birds approached how expectant and most active (imagine that because accustomed to that cast them food). Later there is a small pond, where there are more birds (swans, ducks and others). However, there are several signs that prohibit feeding the birds, since they can be aggressive. It is a very entertaining activity, offers a lovely walk and found me 100% recommended. If I return to Gijón, I am absolutely sure that I will return to go.

  • Love park with a lake fenced off to protect the unusual birds they keep there. Egyptian goose, black swans, various ducks and other goose. There is also a turkey and emus! Plenty of interesting statues dotted around and lots of trees for shade when it gets hot. There is even a play area for the little ones. Parador (upmarket, state-owned Hotel chain) situated at the side with a nice bar and excellent restaurant. Football stadium nearby, so check there isn't a match on if you want peace and quiet.
  • Nice park leading towards the beach. Lovely lake with water spray feature to help keep waterfowl cool on hot days. Plenty of shade for sitting and watching the world go by. Running track towards the beach seems well used by locals and visitors alike.
  • Great park, next to the beach and like an oasis in the city!
  • The playvround for kids is masive! With a lot of slides and structures to play. However, the pond and the animals area is disgusting. Near the city centre is a good place to rest.
  • Nice inspiring place.. Known to be a gay cruising activity every night specially after 12am
