Welcome to Madrid
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.
In the east of the city, not far from Atlético de Madrid's new stadium, lies this little-known park. It is home to all kinds of trees, such as olive, pine and eucalyptus, although it is mainly known for its wonderful almond trees which blossom in February and March.
The park is divided into clearly differentiated areas: the northern area, featuring a romantic landscape style, and the southern agricultural area. The whole of its perimeter is enclosed and it has four entrance gates which lead on to Calle Alcalá to the south, Calle Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena to the north, Avenida 25 de Septiembre to the east and Calle Miami to the west.
Offering a programme packed with activities and events, this is a great cultural space for children, young adults and their families.
