Parks and Gardens of Valencia

Valencia is a very green city. Wherever you go you will pass a little green square, a green alley, or just a random spectacular row of palms. Valencians love their green and are known for it. It is all over the city. Here we list the most notable / accessible parks - beyond such luxurious options there is no need to list every little green square.

Jardines de Turia - Park / Garden in Valencia

Jardines de Turia (Turia Gardens) are 9 km of greenery spanning the whole city. A garden of this scope and complexity is unheard of, it is truly spectacular. The entire river bed with its fertile soil has been converted into a green city, with sports grounds, kid's playgrounds, green mazes, fountains, elaborate gardens, alleys and spectacular buildings like Palau de la Musica and City of Art and Sciences. This splendour of life and colour is crossed over by a variety of gorgeous bridges.

Jardin Botanico - Park / Garden in Valencia

Of course, a green city like Valencia will have its own serious Botanic Garden where you can enjoy the flora of 5 continents and 3000 species, making your visit not only pleasant but also educative. The Valencian Botanic Garden has quite a lively schedule - not only there is serious university research and conferences, but also art exhibitions and even an occasional open-air jazz concert.

Glorieta - Park / Garden in Valencia

Glorieta is a fairly small triangle by a busy roundabout so it is not really worth going out of your way to see it. However, if you do pass by you will be impressed by those incredible trees, good many meters in diameter. A warm atmospheric vibe in a balmy mediterranean evening.

Jardin de Ayora - Park / Garden in Valencia

Jardin de Ayora is a small-ish cosy garden with a pretty central mini-castle lost in a quiet neighourhood of Valencia. There isn't much going on but it is perfect for some tranquility or for reading a book. Only of interest, really, if you live in the area - i.e. if you are a student. In the summer it also hosts some of the events of Feria de Julio.
