Originally a royal park, that is now open to everyone to enjoy. It is a wonderful place to go for a walk. Make sure to check out the Palacio de Cristal, Casita del Pescador, and the roselada rose garden

I stayed in Madrid for eight days, during which one of the friends that I made during the trip brought me here. This is a large, well tended park filled with flowers, manicured shrubbery and statues. As Madrid can be very got in June, the shade is at a premium.

El Parque del Buen Retiro used to be part of my Sunday afternoon routine in Madrid. A Samosa brunch, browsing Las Pulgas for the hippest, slickest and coolest fashions and oddities and then El Parque del Buen Retiro for some serious rest and relaxation (if that's possible with 300 Spaniards in a drum circle high on hash). Love and something else was in the afternoon air there :-)

This park is my favorite part about Madrid. It seems to go on forever, and there are a ton of unique sights to see when you're just taking a stroll. The rose garden is beautiful, as is the Crystal Palace (some of the cleanest, as in style, architecture I have ever seen). I loved sitting on a bench by the lake and watching people out in their paddle boats, and I definitely chose a spot on the lawn and slept for an hour or so (blame it on the jet lag!). If you want to escape the busy city life of Madrid, this is a wonderful place to step into and come out refreshed.

Parque del Buen Retiro is definitely on my top 10 Gogo-parks list. Spring is an excellent time to visit. The locals and visitors bring a positive energy to the park in the form of recreation, photography, basking, conversing, and people watching. Since there's a diverse population, people watching is at the top of the list since there might be an opportunity to discreetly learn something intriguing, but taking a row boat out for a spin on a classy man made pond is also equally arousing.

Watch a puppet show,listen to live music, practise some sport, row a boat or, simply, relax under a tree reading your favourite book. Everything is possible in the centre of Madrid, in El Retiro park, a favourite of Madrid's citizens and tourists.
You can also find Madrid culture here at the historic exhibition spaces of Palacio de Velázquez y Palacio de Cristal.

This is one of the the largest parks I have ever explored! I visited with friends this past summer and found it such a beautiful and peaceful place surrounded by not only tourists but joggers, Madrilenos enjoying a leisure, walk or picnic or just catching up with friends. On my past trip this past New Years I attempted to walk around this park on the perimeter and I swear it was around 6 miles or more.

This park is absolutely beautiful! The monument of Alphonse XII next to the largest of the two ponds in the parc is a beautiful place to lounge around on a sunny day. You can rent row boats to venture out onto the pond for about 5 euros. A great way to spend a sunny (but not too terribly hot) afternoon!
