#2 of 39 in Parks in Madrid
Stretch your legs at Madrid Rio, a 10-km (6.2-mi) long park that runs along the banks of the Manzanares River. Set off on one of the many walking and cycling routes, play a round of tennis, or simply laze on the grass. Cool off at the park’s “beach,” where you can bask in a shallow pool or run among streams of water. Children can tire themselves out in one of 17 different play areas. Stroll through the Huerta de la Partida, an orchard restored to its 18th-century splendor, with trees growing almonds, pears, olives, figs, and more. Check what’s going on in the Matadero Madrid, a former slaughterhouse that today hosts a variety of cultural events. There are a number of places to stop for a drink or bite to eat.

  • A very nice place.. If anyone wants to pass leisure time you can go there. This place is very good for children...
  • Es un conjunto de ocio que cuenta con varias intervenciones arquitectónicas unidas por el río y por la carretera M-30. En su longitud cuenta con zonas de ejercicio, merenderos, construcciones ornamentales y los distintos puentes para pasar de un lado a otro del Manzanares. Hay un centro comercial que bajo mi punto de vista estropea el conjunto y además, la solución arquitectónica de soterrar una carretera como la M-30 no me parece la más adecuada para los vehículos de motor de combustión que tenemos hoy día. Aun así, es estupendo para hacer algo de deporte por su recorrido o como punto de encuentro al sur de la ciudad
  • This place was reworked some years ago and they've done an amazing job. It's very nice for a walk or a quite run with your bike. Plenty of people during weekends. There's also many restaurants along the way, good to have a break and enjoy Madrid's sunny weather. On top of that there are bike renting places along the walk (i've seen a couple at least)
  • Really nice walking area extremely close to city center of Madrid. Recently built and in very good shape, offering options for all ages and many types of activities. A very nice place worh descovering, imh.
  • Lo han dejado genial. Estupendo para pasar el día en familia.
