Due to the 1992 Summer Olympics, Poblenou is home to some of the newest and best beaches in Barcelona, which gives you a very simple family activity for when the weather is nice. Play in the sand with your children, have fun in the water and enjoy an overall great day together by the sea, surrounded not only by beautiful scenery but also by all the complementary services you may need.

If you’d rather take your kids to the park, you also have tremendous options in this neighbourhood. Open in 2008, Parc del Centro del Poblenou is a modern space where your children can enjoy close contact with nature, ride bicycles and let their imaginations run wild in safe and well-equipped playgrounds.

Another great option is Parc del Poblenou. With a vegetation and a wide area for practicing sports, this park offers you the advantage of having direct access to the beach, allowing you to easily enjoy both environments with your children on the same day without having to move around much.

For a different kind of mixed program, head to Parc Diagonal Mar, which harmonizes cutting-edge architecture with the simple beauty of natural environments. Featuring a large children’s play area, this sustainable and original park extends over 14 hectares, which are divided into seven areas.

Right next to it, the Diagonal Mar shopping mall allows you take your kids to the movies and enjoy a family meal in one of its many restaurants. It also features many recreational areas for children to play in.
