About Parque Del Retiro, Madrid
Madrid just does not run out of popular hangouts, and this is the most popular of all. It’s practically always crowded, especially in the weekends, when the families all come out and so do every kind of street performer imaginable- jugglers, painters, musicians, and dancers…even fortune tellers! The highlights here are:
- Museo del Ejercito: A small military museum with a nice collection of armor and the cross that Columbus took with him to the New World.
- Cason del Buen Retiro: A museum of 19th and 20th century paintings, notably of those by Joaquin Sorolla.
- The Lake: Hire a boat, and check out the monument to King Alfonso XII and the colloade.
- The Crystal Palace
- The Palacio de Velazquez
- The Rosaleda Garden and it’s statue dedicated to Satan.
The park is a popular site of international exhibitions.

Retiro is a huge park in Madrid that I have visited a few times now and still have not seen everything, it's that big! Photos are from my last visit when we explored the old zoo area which was Fascinating and there is still plenty of wildlife to see within the park. The landscaping once out of the zoo is stunning. It's a well kept park, it's clean and tidy (very little graffiti,) there are drinking fountains dotted around, as well as refreshment vans if you don't mind paying, kids climbing frames round every corner and plenty for everyone to do. Quite a wonderful place that makes you forget you're in the middle of a capital city
Haven't fully explored it but the time I spent there was amazing, boat rides were €8 per boat for 45mins if you want to paddle by yourself or €2 if you just want a ride around the lake. They also have bikes you can hire so you can go around the park. There are also spaces for running, picnics and roller skating. The park itself has a beautiful rose garden! It was an amazing day!
The greatest park in Madrid. Pretty close to the center with a beautiful lake where you can have a boat ride. Then there's another smaller lake in front of the Cristal Palace. And a small river where wild ducks raise their young. Among the things you can do in the park are cycling, running, doing sport,... If you're visiting the park in the spring for forget the rose garden.
Awesome park in Madrid. One of the best I've seen. It is pretty cool just to hang around. There are a bunch of places to grab some food and plenty of spaces for relaxation. Its definitely worth the visit if you are around Madrid.
A great park in the centre of a great city. There are so many grand buildings and gardens to visit. You could easily spend a whole day here. We strolled around here for hours. We saw many statues & fountains, rowed a boat on the lake, slept on the grass in the sun and had dinner at a little cafe on our first visit. Our second visit was a guided bike ride around the park late on Sunday evening. It was an enjoyable way to know more about the history of the park. Just note that the park is very busy on Sundays, so I'd pick another day to do it.
