Welcome to Madrid
Located in Campo de las Naciones, Juan Carlos I is an immense park covering 160 hectares, in which there is an olive grove with over 2,000 specimens of the former Olivar de Hinojosa, a lake, an auditorium, a collection of open-air sculptures and an activity centre. It was opened to the public in 1992 on occasion of the Madrid European Capital of Culture.
The park is ideal to practice different sports. It has a large skating rink, a golf course, a lake and a river for water sports, such as canoeing, fishing areas, a cycleway and a bike rental service… A free little train to get around the park also runs every half an hour. A wide range of activities are organised for children at weekends.
