  • Attached to the famous calle Uría, relaxing, beautiful sculptures, pond, Park for kids, in short a break from the "battle" of the tour.

  • It is worth going to this Park open to the street and located in the Centre of Oviedo, in the middle of calle Uría. You can't go without making you a photo in the Bank with the statue of Mafalda

  • A stunning park. So many varieties of trees, beautiful statues and winding paths. It's especially magical at dusk when the lights go on.
  • Nice spot to sit in. Lots of trees benches and dogs running about. Good to take the load off. It is beautiful considering it Is in the middle of the city. There are also some churrorias and snack stands. Kids park, fountains, a little skate park and basketball nets dotted around the park.
  • Great for kids: 3 playgrounds, for various ages (1-7), a skate park, a duck pond. During the new year vacation, there's a fun fair, great for young kids. It's small (7-8 different attractions) but has a good variety for age and taste. Sadly it only opens late (after siesta, around 17:30). Overall: Well worth a visit of you're in town, esp. with kids.
  • Beautiful little park. Well kept and spledid to while away an hour or two in the sun with a good book.
  • Beautiful park. Clean and well maintained. Loved walking in the area. Oviedo as a whole is a beautiful city.
