Madrid Rio, Madrid
(4.4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Stretch your legs at Madrid Rio, a 10-km (6.2-mi) long park that runs along the banks of the Manzanares River. Set off on one of the many walking and cycling routes, play a round of tennis, or simply laze on the grass. Cool off at the park’s “beach,” where you can bask in a shallow pool or run among streams of water. Children can tire themselves out in one of 17 different play areas. Stroll through the Huerta de la Partida, an orchard restored to its 18th-century splendor, with trees growing almonds, pears, olives, figs, and more. Check what’s going on in the Matadero Madrid, a former slaughterhouse that today hosts a variety of cultural events. There are a number of places to stop for a drink or bite to eat.

  • It is close to the Centre of Madrid.. .have water sources where to bathe children, a very modern bridge and close to food in a large park stalls, deserve to be visited. Many locals use it for sports

  • Because I'm in Madrid on Erasmus, and there's a really beautiful weather, so I borrowed a bicycle and rode around the River project. Originally I wanted to borrow one from the system of electric bikes that are all over the place after Madrid, but here at the river place is not exactly. a total of popular and there are a lot of cyclists. Is definitely worth it to go/to go to the bridge and also to de Arganzuela Park Casa de Campo.

  • Environment/Park along the river Manzanares (Manzanares ... from the Rhine ...), still has many years of life, but the facility is very nice, intelligent unfortunately today (12. XI. 16) the day was gray, lacked the classic beautiful light of Madrid in the autumn.
