I love this place to ramble. It is among my favourite in Barcelona. All of the parks have their charm. There are a great legacy of our fore fathers who had the hindsight unlike our modern day leaders to keep space for what is beautiful,...More

This was a nice city park but nothing spectacular. It was a nice change from the busy city and right next to the El Born neighborhood.

Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and
clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an
impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica.
Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local
fish to the various restaurants running along the
marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above
serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned
Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs

We saw a lot of people in groups on the grass. One was an open air gymnastics class. Perhaps speak to the Town Hall or Mayors office. Failing that the police?

No there is no pool here. It's more of a botanical garden with trees, lawns etc.
