It’s a common dilemma during the family holidays: mum and dad want to go sightseeing or visit a museum, but the little ones just want to play. In Madrid you can get both, making everyone happy.

There are lots of playgrounds and children’s corners in the city. On Fuencarral Street (between Quevedo and Bilbao) and in a variety of squares – Tirso de Molina, Santa Ana, Lavapiés, Dos de Mayo –, kids can burn off loads of energy. They’ll have sandboxes or other soft enclosures, so you won’t have to worry about your children falling over.

Next to the Royal Palace or along Paseo del Prado, there are strategically located playgrounds where you can take a break and make your children happy on your cultural tour of Madrid. You can also visit the new Mirador de la Cornisa viewpoint at the Royal Palace, which offers stunning views of the Campo del Moro Gardens and Casa de Campo, where children can walk along the esplanade.


The top park for children in Madrid is Madrid Río Park, offering as many as 17 playgrounds or children’s areas and 65 different attractions. Imaginative entertainment for kids of different ages, in a sustainable natural environment: Slide Hill, Log Jungle, Super Tyrolean Traverse, Beach, Rope Trails… just what the little ones need.

The Retiro Park also has 11 children’s playground areas. It is a meeting point and a place for a stroll for many and it is also a must for when you are traveling with children, as it is close to numerous sights like Paseo del Arte, that holds 3 of the most important Spanish art galleries: the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum. You can also roller skate, ride a bike, sunbathe, row a boat and watch concerts, juggler or magician performances.

Casa de Campo Park is a must for any family trip to Madrid. This is where you will find the Madrid’s Zoo Aquarium, the Amusement Park and the remodeled Casa del Campo Lake with numerous restaurants. No kid will want to miss it! The park has a number of children’s playgrounds, like the castle with slides and footbridges to be found past the Puerta de Rodajos gate.

In addition to areas in the city centre, other districts like Usera have children’s play areas, such as the Barrio de Orcasitas Park, a unique park with elements for play, integration and accessibility, or the Jardín el Torero Park which has two sports courts and a children’s play area.

Carabanchel has a children’s play area at the Salvador Allende Park spanning a surface area of 540 mwhich is designed in a fun and attractive way for children of all ages and capabilities.  

And if you want to make a stop with the smallest members of the family, keep our special content in mind. It holds a selection of special facilities for children that even organize workshops and celebrations.
