Parks History

This wonderful park is situated in the Pedralbes district of Barcelona, slight outside of this city’s downtown area. 

The park was designed by Lluís Riudor i Carol, then director of the Barcelona Municipal Park and Garden Service.

The park opened its doors in 1965, and its big claim to fame is its impressive variety of different varieties of rose bushes. Cervantes Park features about 11,000 rose bushes of some 245 different varieties.

The Mediterranean climate of Barcelona allows the roses to remain in bloom practically from April to November, although between May and June they reach the zenith in their flowering, which gives this park a singular beauty.

Every year a contest for new roses is held in this park, which are baptized with different names by their creators.

The park also has several grassy areas and small groves where you can kick back and relax, as well as a children’s play area, ping-pong tables, and a picnic area.
