over 3 years by Harry 1 / 5Please can someone tell me of a modern park somewhere in Europe which is more disappointing than Parque Juan Carlos I
over 3 years by Teodoro Lobato Delgado 5 / 5I believe that the one who has described this park has not had the pleasure of visiting it. It is a great museum outdoors. A park where to find agreeable corners where to rest or diverse milestones where to contemplate the panoramic one of Madrid from a privileged point, design that mixes urban plots and vegetation. It is a modern park, not comparable with any different one, and suitablly for all kinds of cultural, sports or playful activities. Do not be left to be deceptive for whom it does not see beyond his noses, and he does not conceive the parks in his environment and with his own tour, still not being historical or only leafy. To open the mind and to come to enjoy a park for all the senses.

over 4 years by Tom 1 / 5I am sorry to hear that Parque Juan Carlos I has not improved - and wonder if it should be excluded from 'Christendom'? It is a godless place and many of the Brutalist features have military overtones.
over 4 years by Anonymous 1 / 5The editorial is right - this is surely the ugliest park in Christendom. Whoever thought that such ghastly and monstrous concrete features should ever be brought to life was surely of another planet. That said, for the locals this is a good park to cycle or run round - simply because of its size. And there are a few playgrounds for kids. And one ice cream stall. But poor King Juan Carlos must wake up squirming every day, thinking that his name was put to this. The day they decide to dig it up and start again will surely be the day they do Madrid a big favour.
