Not far from Park Güell, this refreshing public park has a pleasant, meandering, splashing pool. The pool, along with swings, showers and a snack bar, makes for a relaxing family stop on hot summer days and is strictly a local affair. The park area is open all year; only the lake-pool closes outside summer.

From the Penitents metro station, it’s a 15-minute walk. Enter from Carrer Mare de Déu del Coll.

The park is set inside a deep crater left by long years of stone quarrying. On one side of it, an enormous concrete sculpture, Elogio del Agua (In Praise of Water) by Eduardo Chillida, is suspended. Wander the trails around the high part of this hill-park and enjoy views of the city and Tibidabo.
