Parc de la Ciutadella
If you prefer a less touristy park here are a few options.
Parc del Guinardó
The best part about this park is the 360° viewpoint. You can find this at the top of the park where you’ll find Bunkers del Carmel. This one is especially popular with locals and runners on the weekends. It’s also one of the largest public parks in Barcelona. This one is a bit tricky to find, the closest metro stop is ‘Guinardó | Hospital de Sant Pau’ with Line 4. Entrance to the park is free!
Park El Clot
This is another hidden local gem as it’s in one of the less touristic neighborhoods. This is great for sports as it has free access to three basketball hoops and two football pitches (cemented). It also has a unique design as it’s an old factory that has been turned into a park. Many of the previous buildings ruins have been integrated into the park, such as a type of aqueduct feature. This is near the Glories shopping center and can be accessed by Line 1, Line 2, or FGC (local train) at either ‘Glories’ or ‘Clot’. The entrance to this park is also free.
