  • Relatively recent park (declared as such in 1971 and therefore called Athens park, whereas previously this area was called the Field of the Tela, because in the sixteenth century there were tournaments and fairs), attached to the gardens of the Campo del Moro, so much so that if the latter were not fenced off, the end of one and the beginning of the other would not stand out. It is therefore bounded to the north by the aforementioned gardens of Campo del Moro, to the west by the Paseo de la Virgen del Puerto, to the south by calle de Segovia and to the east by the Cuesta de la Vega. Not very large (about 350 meters long, with varying width, on average about 160 meters), the park is cut into 2 by a driveway: the Paseo Ciudad de Plasencia. The most interesting area is the one attached to the gardens of Campo del Moro, slightly narrower than the other, as here there is a basketball/volleyball court, a children's play area, public bathrooms and a fountain with a large bathtub. In the other area, the one to the south of paseo Ciudad de Plasencia, there is nothing, apart from the trees, except for a large bar kiosk in the east (towards calle de Segovia). The gardens are well maintained and well maintained. The park is not fenced, so it is accessible 24 hours a day.

  • A really lovely place to walk and chill out. I stayed in this park for around 2 hours, just sitting, walking and laying on the grass. It is really a beautiful escape from the city and noise.
  • Nice park. Cool shade.
