Why locals love it

This huge recreational and cultural park was opened in 1992, when Madrid was Europes capital of culture. With it's location northeast of the city and close to the airport, few tourists take the trip here, while locals go for long strolls, exercise or weekend picnics. The park contains a river, a lake and an auditorium.

Why you should visit it

Put on your best shoes and take the metro here (Campo de las Naciones). This park covers 160 hectares, and offers a wide range of walks between natural beauty, playgrounds and giant abstract sculptures. Bike hire is free as well as you can catch a small 'train' around the park, if your feet are sore. Check the information points for more info.

Special tip

As it's wide open with few spots of shade, don't forget your hat or sunscreen - while drinks and other refreshments can be bought several places.
