Parks in Madrid: Fresh air, romantic walks and children´s paradises

There are many parks in Madrid. And we do not refer to small parks, but huge ones.

Let´s start with a fact unknown to most tourists that arrive to Madrid to spend a few days. Madrid is the capital city in Europe with more trees per square meter. Trees can be found in every street, but also at the city´s beautiful gardens and parks. Just to give an example of the size of parks we refer to. La Casa de Campo is more than twice the size of Central park. The park at Valdebebas is 1,5 times the size of central park….

These parks are perfect to escape from the busy shopping streets or main boulevsards in Madrid. Parks in Madrid are a great way to enjoy a break whilst visiting with children. There are many playground areas in nearly all of them (The romantic Capricho park is the exception to this rule)

You can also find the location of these  parks  in our  touristic map  as well as restaurants and other attractions you can combine with their visit.

We also recommend you to have a look at our  Madrid guide where you will get lots of inside information on Madrid and things to do adapted to your travel style.

These are our favorite parks in Madrid.
