Retiro is the biggest and best park in central Madird. Oarticularly suggest a visit to the Crystal Palace and the boating lake (only 8 euros for 45 minutes). Best time to go is early on a Sunday morning before the crowds grow.

A wonderful feeling just walking in the park. Not crowded, not noisy. Love watching ppl walking their dogs and families enjoying the bonding moments. Lovely sight. Great care taken for this park. Appreciate the existence of this park and the joy it brings to ppl. Probably better than Central Park (NYC). You be the judge.... ;)

We found Retiro Park a bit disappointing— it’s all a bit much the same, and the maintenance is lacking in some parts.

The Park has got some reasonably interesting features ( but not outstanding), but mostly it is fairly simple planting of trees and shrubs, with some nice avenues and shaded laneways, but nothing really to get excited about.

As a large area of green space in the middle of a major city, it is a huge asset. As a place to visit, it would not rank highly on our list of priorities
