It's useless but very good if you have to wait your train at Sants

It's a nice neighbourhood's park, dogs, basketball, a library. But nothing else. For that reason is a place to go if you have to take a train at Sants, and have plenty of time... read more

It's a nice neighbourhood's park, dogs, basketball, a library. But nothing else. For that reason is a place to go if you have to take a train at Sants, and have plenty of time ahead of you. It's enough good to have picnic. Try not to go in the evenings...

This is a strange park in Barcelona. It's different than Park Guell, the Laberint Park, and Ciutadella Park. This park is in the industrial area of Sants. The towers give the park a different and new flavour. There are mostly just locals at this park, and you won't find a single tourist here. There's a metal dragon sculpture, which has... More

The park is just another park that can be seen in many European great cities. The towers at its end might give it some different flavor than others. The pond and the lawns are fine, but there is nothing much to them. It is nevertheless a fine green place near the train station.

I see in this modest public park adjacent to the Sants train station and our hotel, a reflection of Barcelona's commitment to visual excellence. Cutting edge beauty where least expected.

Our hotel was immediately next to this small park. There is a small lake and greenery which is welcome in a largely industrial area. Unfortunately there are fairground attractions (which did not seem to be used) immediately next to the park. This cheapens the area and spoils the atmosphere. On one of the nights we were there there was a... More

We passed by daily along our path from hotel to Sants station. Many families strolling in the park in the evening. It's more of a modern design park with dragon sculpture (as a playground for kids) & fountains. Nothing demands one's attention to divert their route to visit this park IMHO.

A perfect place for children to play and adults to walk or just soak the sun. The parque has a basket ball court, football area, table tennis, swimming pool, gym which are all free to access.

Dedicated to the industrial strength of the region, this park was constructed at the site of the old textile factory. The park was opened in 1985, designed by the Basque architect Luis Pena Ganchegui. Another Basque artist, Andres Nagel, is the author of a giant metal dragon, the largest among many sculptures in the park. The central attraction is a... More

This park is right next to the Sants train station and has some unusual modern art and sculptures. Nice change from the norm

The Parque de la Espana Industrial is an odd place. There's a large metal "sculpture" of a dragon which serves as a slide for children (but it's pretty filthy). There's what could be a lovely duck pond, but the water is sedentary and foul. There are interesting towers (too large to be street lights, too small to be lighthouses,...what were... More
