Features
Free, Family-friendly

Once cut off from the city by a major highway, Madrid’s little trickle of a river, the Manzanares, has been reborn as the centerpiece of a massive four-mile park dotted with free outdoor activities for all ages, including jogging and bike paths, playgrounds, ziplines, skate parks, and urban beaches with cooling fountains for frolicking kids. The park stretches from Principe Pio train station (with access to the even larger Casa de Campo park) to the BMX bike course near Ciudad Lineal. Architecture buffs will enjoy the array of bridges, from the historic Puente de Segovia (1582) and Puente de Toledo (1718) to the futuristic Puente de Arganzuela, a spiral of steel by architect Dominique Perrault that was inaugurated in 2011.
