Nice stroll

We enjoyed great family time in the park and watched lots of street performers. Sun was shinning and we loved it

Almost skipped this as we were running out of time, but glad we made it work. It was a beautiful day and many people were out sightseeing and walking their children and dogs. My best pictures are from this visit.

I came to Barcelona to study for a month. I live near Sagrada Familia so this park was only a 30-40 min walk depending on how I caught the red/green lights. The park is a calm little oasis amongst the city life and concrete. There are nice grassy knolls to set up and have a picnic. If you brought your... More

The beautiful statues and green everywhere wiith people walking, some with purpose others without. During the dday the street entertainers will have big bubble makers and you'll hear music of many cultures. The sound... More

Beautiful February day. Been to Barcelona a few times but never to park. Had lovely stroll. Place full of people of different ages doing different things- even saw folk training to be street entertainers. Particularly liked the fountain

Much to see here. Beginning with the entrance to the Parc with Arc de triomf at the entrance. Paths leading to different views. The highlight is the amazing fountain. Plenty of space to walk. Sites enhanced with locals enjoying themselves, school children on field trips. Several notable historic buidings within the walking paths of Parc. Since the paths are a... More

This park makes you wonder how great the Universal Exposition must have been when it happened in Barcelona in the 19th century. The place is still amazing to this day.

Great park in the middle of the city. The fountain is pretty, you can also see Arch de Triumph, there are benches, people working out and lots of walking paths.

We went to the Park on our last afternoon as we had done all our sightseeing and were looking to fill time. The walk down to the Park from the Arc de Triomphe was actually really good and would recommend doing that. The Park itself is nice and quite big, with a lot of greenery and the Catalan Parliament in... More

This is a very nice park with a gorgeous fountain very close to the city centre. I recommend entering from the north, walking beneath the Arc de Triumf and into the park. Explore the grounds, see the Catalonian Parliament building and take a break from the hustle and bustle of city exploring. :)

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 which practically lie on the beach itself.
