  • This was one of the first places that a friend and I visited the place in Oviedo, having parked just off after being on Mount Naranco. We went there early in the evening, in winter, when darkness had already fallen, but there were still many people around who strolled and were enjoying the Park. I was struck immediately by the large presence of statues (whereby Oviedo is well known). The cutest and most well known of the Park is undoubtedly that of Mafalda, which was achieved during the visit of its creator Quino town.

  • The field is the lung of Oviedo. The tours are always very welcome, even on rainy days, it has its charm. Mafalda, essential visit.

  • Good park with interesting sculptures and plants. Live music occasionally. Good shelter from the summer sun
  • Nice park with beautiful fountains. Smells a bit in places though.
  • Wonderful park in the middle of the city centre. A fantastic place to have a walk, workout, seat and read a book or meet friends. It even has a pond with ducks in it, and if you spend a little while there you might encounter a squirrel :)
  • My favourit place in Oviedo - a beautiful green park with original statues, birds and fountains.
  • beautiful, not much else can be said. Definitely worth a look
