Great opportunity to use a row boat and walk around the scenic gardens. Huge park which is buzzing with life.

A great place for a meander and a sit in the sunshine . the cafe on the far side of the estanque is quieter but this place typifies madrileno weekend Paseo S .

The park was quaint and well kept. The attractions within and close to the park were amazing. Several places to stop for food and an ice cream along the way.

Had an amazing time here, made me wish I lived in Madrid so I could visit every day. So beautiful even in March on a sunny day without any flowers. Shame about the snack bar opposite the lake being a rip-off

They did not give a time for it to reopen and based on past reviews it seems like it has been closed many days if not a couple weeks.
