It's a really nice place to go for a walk and enjoy a different view of Santander. The Magdalena palace is beautiful from the outside. Many locals go there for a walk.

Nice enough park. Walk anti clockwise round it and you come to small zoo at end with penguins and sealions, although think enclosures too small.

All the tour groups go here so try for earl or later in the day. The open air ship museum is good. I also liked the enclosures with seals and sea lions and penguins

I am not sure but the paths are wide enough. There is a bike hire outside so my feeling would be yes. I think it would be nice to cycle around it.
