The 1888 Barcelona Universal Exposition (in Catalan: Exposició Universal de Barcelona and Exposición Universal de Barcelona in Spanish) was Spain's first International World's Fair and ran from April 8 to December 9, 1888. It was also the first of the two held in Barcelona (the second one being in 1929).
We happen to see this place purely by chance as we were walking past and soon discovered a gold colored statue shining in the evening sun. We were thrilled when we got to see this place up close. As we explored further, we came across gardens and finally the Catalan Parliament building. Nice place to walk specially in the evening to relax and recharge. No entry fee of any sort. We started the walk at the Arc and then moved along, crossed the road to access the park. Certainly worth a look.
Probably the nicest park we ran across in the short 2 days in Barcelona. Walking into the park there were ping pong tables (which I guess is common), tons of benches and a statue surrounded by a pond. The park was filled with lots of walking spaces and close to the botanical gardens and zoo. It wasn't over crowded but you could tell it was a place families liked to visit.
Beautiful park for a stroll or a day picnic. Very lively in parts and quiet in others, you can find the balance that's right for you. There are several notable sculptures and fountains throughout, and be sure to keep an eye out for the beautiful green birds that roost up in the trees. There are also public facilities including drinking fountains and bathrooms, and we saw at least one food stand selling hot dogs, ice cream, and drinks.
Visited with my family and we enjoyed the place a lot. Only had an hour to spend there but we could have spent much more if we had the time. The center area with the gold statue and fountain is very impressive. More generally, the place is beautiful, very green, with lots of flora, fun spots and just great for a picnic or a longer hang out. There are also several kiddie playgrounds and kiosks for snacks and drinks.
Gosh... This park is so beautiful !! 🌷🌹🌺🌻 full of flowers, fountains, modern and old statutes, couples, families, friends. Easy to come along with a bike. There's a cafe where you can get a drink or a snack. It is overpriced though, better to bring food from outside and eat it in the park. As good as park Guel. I highly recommend to visit this place if you like nature and parks🌳🌲🌱🍃🌿
A very pleasant area to stroll and enjoy time with loved ones or even yourself. I loved the little pond where you could hire a boat for a very reasonable price and explore it for half an hour. Lots of animals and an abundant amount of plant species. And the biiig, monumental fountain. You gotta check it out!:-)
Wonderful park to rest, to picnic and to entertain. Really romantic. Toilets on place but for ladies, no comment. I love this place for its natural essence and architecture. Easy access to move forward to city center or to beach. One bad point for sport trainer, on few spot this park smells bad, thanks dear dogs.
Beautiful, large park. the fountain is absolutely stunning, a great place to walk around or have a picnic and lounge around. Don't go to the zoo at the end, it ruined my trip. The camels humps were dropped indicating they were malnourished and dehydrated. All the animals looked depressed and sad. Sitting or sleeping. They looked unkempt.
This Park is really nice, you can sit and relax or have a quiet drink. The reason it's getting 4 stars is because of the incessant nuisance that is the men walking around constantly pestering you, asking if you want to buy beer and water,not taking no for an answer, its actually ridiculous, probably every 5 minutes. That's not the Parks fault though hence just 1 star taken off. Would be good if the police could move these people on but it's probably a waste of their valuable time.
