Casa de Campo, Madrid

4.0
#10 of 39 in Parks in Madrid
Originally enjoyed by Fernando VI as a royal hunting ground, is now the largest green space in Madrid, with extensive bike and walking trails, a zoo and aquarium, sports arena, amusement park, and cable car. In contrast to the manicured grounds of Retiro Park, this area grows wild and allows visitors to see Madrid's ecosystem in its natural state. Scout out a picnic spot in the sun-dappled forest, walk along creeks, and read up on the local plant and animal life on the informational plaques. Watch for the bright green monk parakeets that flit among the treetops. Young visitors will love the many play areas and the amusement park. Finish off your visit with a ride on the cable car, taking in bird's-eye views of the Temple of Debod, the Parque del Oeste Rose Garden, and the Royal Palace on your way back to the city station, which is near Metro Argüelles.

  • This Park is absolutely huge, and it's really nice to walk around. Note that a portion of the Park is a nature reserve in which it is formally forbidden to venture (i.e. surrounded by fencing and barbed wire), but you can see a small part of the local fauna (mainly of rabbits and) different species of birds). There are water points in several places, as well as several points of view high offering views on the city of Madrid. You get lost quite easily and more we ventured deep into the nature, more time then it takes to find the way back to the main roads. Note that a part of water courses indicated on the cards are dry (classic in Spain) and only a part of what is stated as pedestrian paths are real paths in the middle of the vegetation. Attention if you walk with children or seniors.

  • This is a huge and pretty wild park right by the centre of the city. Yes there is a fun fair and a zoo and good bars and restaurants by the lake, but what I like best is just walking into the wilder parts where you are alone. Avoid the area immediately underneath the cable cars. It's a rent boy area that's not very nice. It's best in winter and spring. The summer is just too hot.
  • Casa de Campo Park is a huge and kind of a wild park. Is located right by the centre of the city. In this area is also the zoo of Madrid, nice pubs and restaurants. Its awesome to visit it in the fall.
  • Its.. Very dusty not a lot of green and a bit of a let down. But the good points are access to the zoo, animal park, amusement park and teleferico via metro
  • We accessed via teleferico. The ride is short (10min) and the views are ok. The restaurant is clean and has great views. The paella is specially nice and the portions are large. My kids (4 and 7) specially enjoyed the soft play area, it is NOT free, but worth it to keep them entertain ed before heading back. Nice little lunch time plan.
  • Beautiful park to walk and bike and lots of other things to do. Wonderful view the royal palace from the lake.
