Spring is lived in a different way in each city: to the green tones and natural flowers that grow everywhere we need to add the possibility to enjoy differently the parks we find throughout the city, as in the case of Barcelona.
But there are parks and parks, and more in the Catalan capital where you add the fully urban nature arising from respect for the natural environment, like the mountains that surround Barcelona. Therefore … Which are the best parks to live the spring in Barcelona?
Park Miró: into the sun and in the shade
From your apartment in Miró Park you just have to head out to your balcony to see a park with a completely different physiognomy to what we can find in other urban oasis of nature. In the Miró park, although it occupies only four blocks of the emblematic Eixample district, we can find pergolas, reproductions of a forest of Mediterranean pine trees, a library on a sheet of water, sport facilities and, perhaps what has become the symbol: the monumental sculpture Dona i Ocell by the famous Catalan artist Joan Miró, resting on a fountain and a wide expanse of lawn.
Precisely this concourse lawn is perfect to chill out after an excellent Catalan food.The visitor can rest quietly, lying and sunbathing while he or she watches the locals exercising, doing yoga or imitating our pleasant break.
Turó Park: an oasis in the middle of a nerve
Just two minutes from the Diagonal, the main artery of Barcelona, we find the Turó Park: a park of classic design where neighbours of the uptown city stroll elegantly. In the beautiful and elegant avenue Pau Casals linking -Turó Park with Diagonal- we can find a cloudless sky of trees because once immersed in this classic and chic park, we can seek refuge from high temperatures with a full sky of green leaves.
If we want to take a break after sightseeing in Barcelona But without missing anything from the city, nothing like visiting the lily pond, where you can enter in an absolute state of relaxation. This is just ten minutes from your apartment in Entença, which is also connected to the beautiful and shaded Josep Tarradellas Avenue.
Citadel Park: The classic among classics
Taking the Park Guell and the majestic mountains of Collserola, and other natural monuments like Montjuïc or a total of 82 parks and gardens that Barcelona has got, it is difficult to highlight a park par excellence. But if we were to do so, perhaps the Citadel has more ballots to be the most enjoyable in spring.
Just five minutes from the Barceloneta (and its beach) and three minutes from your apartment in Born, the Ciutadella Park welcomes the visitor introducing us the famous Barcelona Zoo and having beautiful gardens where you can make a picnic .This is definetely the perfect place to keep busy with an all-day plan. Its flagship mammoth (memory of a past attempt to make a theme park of the prehistory), the vast and monumental waterfall that presides the park and the possibility to take a leisure boat ride on its central pond, make this park the ideal epicentre to enjoy the mild and Mediterranean temperatures only enjoyable during the spring months.
