Jardines de la Torre de Les Aigues simply means ‘water tower gardens’. The garden has been named after the old water tower which was built in 1870 to supply water to the residences in the Eixample district of the city. The area features a couple of Childrens swimming pools with shallow water. You’d hardly find a place like this in the entire city. Jardines de la Torre de Les Aigues is a lovely junction to separate yourself for the hustle and bustle of the city.The pools here are hardly a foot and a half deep.
- Toilets and changing rooms are available.
- There’s a restaurant here too.
- Holiday time(1st Aug to 7 Sept ):10am-3pm

What a little summer time gem for kids! I took my 5 year old and there were kids of all ages swimming. There are 2 pools, 1 side is super shallow and the other is a little deeper but still safe. They allow first come first serve, so get there earlier to avoid a line or waiting for people to leave in order for you to enter. They have 2 restrooms and could use a little more cleaning but it was ok by all means. Best of all its super cheap! Enjoy!
We didn't know what to expect (water is 40cm - 60cm deep, and there's splashing, so parents/carers need swimwear!), but this was a hidden gem. Perfect if you're visiting Barcelona with young children in hot weather. It's busy, but lots of shade, room for a picnic, showers and toilets and a beautiful courtyard. Great to cool off, very safe with lifeguards.
Not perfect, but in context I'm going to give it five stars. This place is right in the Eixample, and they've slotted a very cute kids' pool and beach into what could have been a relatively bland back space. It has plenty of shade from trees and in the summer it's well-kept and pretty clean. There's quite an attractive old tower right in the middle of the pool. Best of all, it's very cheap... Only €1.55. It has changing rooms and good toilets, but take some loo roll! No lockers.
I took my nephew there a couple of times to beat the summer heat. It is a fantastic spot to go with kids. There is a rather large kiddy pool 40 cm deep on one side 60 cm deep on the other. The water seemed pretty clean and didn't stink of chlorine either. There are always two lifeguards on task. Next to the pool there is a long stretch of sand which is a hybrid between a huge sandbox and a mini beach where the children can play with their buckets and shovels. Most of this inner courtyard is cooled down by the shade of the trees and there are several benches where families can set up their "quarters/home base" and let their children roam safely. They let in 200 people at a time, so it's never too crowded but this means you either get there early enough or you get cut off and need to wait even longer which isn't easy/fun for the kiddos. I recommend this spot to families exclusively, I saw a lady who went to try and relax, reading a book in the shade, she got splashed and sand kicked on her sarong...
Open at 10:30 not 10am until 6pm and it is closed on a Monday. Now that there are restrictions on the number of people allowed, there is quite often a queue of people waiting. It’s much nicer as it is not as crowded as it used to be.
