This is a park that has been created in a former riverbed (the river was diverted to prevent flooding). You can walk or cycle or run for miles, there are children's playgrounds, there are sports fields (baseball, soccer, rugby) and as you get closer to the sea there's the amazing arts and science centre. You can picnic or barbecue, admire... More

Whoever had the idea to convert a river bed into a park was truly inspired. It's a fantastic place. We hired bikes and cycled from one end to the other, and then down to the beach. The cycle paths are so smooth and there are lovely cafes dotted along the way. Fully recommend spending a day or two cycling in... More

The old riverbed of the diverted Rio Turia has been beautifully converted into a multi-recreational public park, and it is perhaps the apsect of the city that most Valencians are justifiably proud of. Every sporting interest is catered for, as well as formal gardens, venues and casual spaces for picnics and barbecues. Many bridges old and new still run across... More

i visited the green area 3 times and it was always very nice to see the people relaxing, doing sports, go biking, and sitting around. this area is very important for the live quality in valencia. it was a good decision after the flood disaster in 1957 to convert this area in a green wonder

This park made on the old riverbed has become in a must see of city of Valencia. It cuts through the entire city offering lots of green space that is very accessible city wide and is a great way to travel through the city by foot or bike. There are many parks, sports facilities, paths... I use go there very... More

It is a really huge park with beautiful trees but it had several mud ponds on the way. Also sometimes they close some parts of it to cut some trees

I often say the thing that lets a lot of European cities down is the lack of good quality parks. What was the Rio Turia in Valencia has to be the ultimate exception. We spent a whole day walking from the western end to the eastern end (the oceanographic) star to finish with the kids. Not one complaint from them... More
