Casa de Campo, El Retiro Park and Madrid Río are Madrid’s best known green areas, but almost every neighbourhood in the city has its own park, square or community garden in which to go for a walk or do a bit of exercise.

PLEASE NOTE:

El Retiro and eight of the city’s other parks (El Capricho, Sabatini Gardens, the Rose Garden in Oeste Park, Juan Carlos I, Juan Pablo II, Quinta de Fuente del Berro, Quinta de los Molinos and Quinta Torre Arias) may close if weather conditions are severe. On these occasions you are also advised not to visit Dehesa de la Villa and Oeste Park which have no gates and cannot be closed to the public.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, from 1 September all parks will close very day between 10pm and 6am.
