    Small but good gardens located to the side of the Royal Palace enroute to the Plaza de Espana and the Temple of Debod. There are some small fountains and some nice paths. Well worth a 30 minute visit.

    In May all the roses were blooming and it was great time to visit. Free entrance. Walking distance from Principe Pio. A nice day out.

    This is a pleasant oasis of greenery. The Art and Spirituality exhibit in the Villanueva Pavillion offered a satisfying mix of paintings/sculptures/videos from different eras and schools of art that explore the ineffable.

    This is a nice park in the Chamartin District. It is a good place for a walk or run. It has some rests from the Berlin wall and also the bear, the icon of the city.
    It is a little bit small though!

    Extremely well maintained and very quiet formal gardens located in Retiro Park. There are many peacocks and ducks in the adjacent water areas. Located near the rose garden of the park.

    Nothing much to see - it is on the way of the walk between the Basilica and the
    palace.
    Activity place for nearby school and dog walking.

    Parque Cuarto Deposito is quite a nice park. It has some lovely landscaped areas and some really colourful flowers. It has a few other interesting features too, like water features and a beautiful rose garden. It is easy to just walk in and keep walking quietly without getting tired, that's how easy it is. We some some people having a picnic, while some children enjoyed the amenities in the playground. Worth a visit if you are in the area and are inclined for some quiet time.

    I was told that this is a very old park. Well it's a small place with a very old wall that dates back a thousand years or more but that's it. There is a small park that contains a mediocre and a modest plantation. There is no entry so you only see it from outside. Will take around 15 minutes to see the whole park from outside.

    Plaza Parterre is one of the nicest areas in the park. Open, well taken care of, clean, it offers the nicest "way out" the park.

    This is a lovely quiet and green spot set back behind a set of office and apartment buildings. It used to be a vegetable garden (huerto) for the cloistered nuns that lived in a the Convent del Sacramento nearby in the 17th Century. In the 1970s the immediate area was redeveloped but the garden space was kept. It seems that someone has started a tiny veggie garden on the top of the stairs going towards Calle del Rollo but otherwise there is a lot of ivy ground cover and some fruit trees. Sadly there isn't any information available on site on its history.

    There are 2 entrances to the garden: Calle del Sacramento, 7 & Calle del Rollo. If you come in from Calle del Rollo, its on the bend, walk under the glass window office bridge. If coming from Calle del Sacramento, walk through the open gate down the stairs that lead below the apartments. Either way you'll see greenery ahead. Note that the google info is wrong, this garden space is only open Mondays - Fridays, 8am - 6pm. It is sometimes called Jardín del Palacio O'Reilly.

    It is close to a similar small 'hidden' garden 'El Jardín del Príncipe de Anglona' but this one seems to have much fewer visitors.

    This is a park on the South side of the Palace. It is a very plain and simple park. Mostly catering to the locals and people from the neighbourhood nearby. Nothing much to see here.
