We stumbled across this park randomly and were so glad we did. Really pretty, when we went on a Sunday it was buzzy with music performers. Really beautiful at golden hour when the sun is starting to set looking down over the park from the...More

This place is not far from La Ramblas near to the port and is worth a visit if you are out and about for sightseeing. It is easy to miss so check the map for location. I would not advise doing this at night since...More

Take plenty of time to visit this park. It has some amazing building, structures, fountains and lots of trees. Seeing it at night it is beautiful too!

Spent some good hours in this park after a visit to Barcelona Zoo. Very well maintained, good for walking and the fountain is spectacular. It's not one of the main tourist attractions but for me it was much better than parc Guell .

The park is a nice refuge near the water. While the overall experience is good, the fountain is the real star. It's huge with a second story terrace. And what other fountain have you seen that has plants built into it? Awesome.

This is a nice spacious park, good to sit and enjoy the cool breeze (depending on the season you go) and probably have a picnic.

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

No there is no pool here. It's more of a botanical garden with trees, lawns etc.

Opposite the fountain within the park there is a small bar that serves cold drinks and light bites. Perfect for refreshing yourself or perhaps having a light bite I.e a sandwich and a drink. Chairs and tables are also... More
