The park is clean, big and looks beautiful. There are several places where you can have a drink or eat but a bit on the pricey side. The two palaces located at the park aren’t worth cueing for. It’s not impressive. But it will be...More

Fabulous park to explore or chill. Very clean and some beautifully landscaped areas to walk or cycle through. The lake is particularly beautiful.

This is a great place to take a long stroll. It has long, lingering paths and beautiful ornamental trees. A must see to anyone visiting Madrid!

What a stunning park with lots to see & do. Loved the boating lake with very green water in it. Nice statues lining a walkway & beautiful fountains. Don’t miss a walk round this park.

Lovely walk, nice little icecream and drinks vendors around the park. Amazing exhibitions. Well worth a visit to the plaza de crystal. Beautiful park! Sitting round the lake watching the sun go down, priceless.

Visited Retiro Park on a Sunday..... it was bustling with puppeteers, street performers, tarot card readers, costumed characters and much more. It's lovely to watch families casually strolling along, enjoying the greenery, robust monuments, and a busy lake where people were paddling around. A great...More
