Last but not least, this being my last blog post on our trip to Barcelona, I think that it would be an injustice, if I don’t share about our experience of the most recent, beautiful and breathtaking park in the city: Diagonal Mar Park.
This Park is located near the Diagonal Mar shopping mall, between Diagonal Avenue And Nova Mar Bella beach in Barcelona.
It is only about 20 minutes on the metro to the centre of Barcelona and very close to shopping center and the beach.
Barcelona’s Ecological Park
After indulging ourselves in a shopping spree, we decided to take a stroll heading towards the beach. This led us to the Park Diagonal Mar, where all its pathways lead to the beach.
The Diagonal Mar Park is a park that applies sustainable development. In fact, this can be seen in the use of ground water for watering the plants and the ponds, the use of local species that consume less water and are easily maintained, and last but not least, the intelligent control of the water in the fountains and the lighting.
This park is a perfect place to stroll around and take some sun or to sit on a beautifully designed bench to catch the abundance of sunlight or even watch the sunset.
As a matter of fact, we enjoyed walking through this beautifully designed green park, full of modern art and stylish structures.
There is also a large children’s play area, a raised walkway over water, the lake with sculptures which spray out water and the curved tubular structures. To say the least, it is a breathtaking sight! (more…)
