Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Forced to go a day that does good to enjoy greenery and a spectacular lake. I recommend if you go with children take a boat and take a walk around the Lake. Economical 6 euros 45 minutes

  • A great place to come if you have some extra time in Madrid or are a repeat traveller looking for something a bit different. Basically its a huge urban park (think Hampstead Heath as a UK equivalent) ...  read more »
  • It could be better care... but it is a real gem in Madrid. A lung where stroll... ... exercise or simply forget the noise of the capital.

  • Massive park in Madrid. Great for getting out of the city and loose yourself around it. Exquisite vegetation and great for sports (running, cycling, walking) it offers quite a lot of options and you can take the teleférico (cable car) to get there and back from central Madrid.
  • It's a beautiful park. It's not very common to visit but I think it's worth it. You should use the cableway to get there. It has an amazing view of the city
  • This is my most favorite park in Madrid. I like it even more than Retiro because it feels so natural. Retiro just doesn't feel real, it is too manicured. But here, you feel a part of nature with the long rolling fields and sitting underneath the huge canopy of the coniferous trees. It is beautiful. Sitting back and watching the views, you can really escape the big city of Madrid, and rest with nature. Take the cable car ride to get here, and you can see amazing views from high in the sky.
  • The park is nice for a walk, and the best way to get here is via the teleferico. From there you can go to the lake and watch rowers from several restaurant terraces. Gets very dry and hot on sunny days, so wear sane clothing.
  • If you need to relax - definetily a place to go. Huge park with many places to go like Zoo and Attractions Park. Once upon the time there was world cup XC race there, and now it is nice trail to go after the work to relax. Not technical, so it is suitable for beginners.
