Parc de la Creueta del Coll

Park in Camp Nou, Pedralbes & La Zona Alta

A favourite with families, this refreshing public park has a meandering lake pool for splashing in, along with swings, showers and a snack bar. The park is set inside a deep crater left by long years of stone quarrying, and has an enormous concrete sculpture, Elogio del agua (In Praise of Water) by Eduardo Chillida, suspended on one side. The pool closes outside of summer.

Enter from Carrer Mare de Déu del Coll, a 1km walk east from the Penitents metro station.

Views of the city and Tibidabo extend from the hilly trails.
