Joan Miro Park
Older residents of Barcelona remember back when the Joan Miro Park, or Parc de L’Escorxador (Slaughter Park), was a slaughter yard infamous for having faulty gates, which would allow animals to escape and run into passersby. Today, the beautiful, six hectare park – a haven of serenity amidst Barcelona’s busy chaos – couldn’t be more different. This park, which was designed by four young designers as part of a contest, is filled with pleasant fountains, trees, a small manmade beach, and a children’s play area. It also has many beautiful sculptures, including Joan Miro’s eye-catching piece, the 22-metre “Woman and Bird.”
- Wander around and enjoy the Joan Miro Park’s delightful mishmash of sculptures, lush greenery, and architectural styles.
- Have a picnic, and then let your kids play on the slides and climbing frames whilst you sit down with a packed lunch and good book, and break from Barcelona's hustle and bustle.
- Admire the enormous and colourful “Woman and Bird” statue created by Joan Miro, Native Barcelonan and one of the Surrealist movement’s most prominent and influential figures (who you can also read about in the library, which sits alongside the park).
The Joan Miro Park’s address is Calle Arago 1, and it opens daily at 10 am. Entrance is free and the park is handicapped accessible. Buses 27, 30, 43, 44, or 109 pass by, and the FCG station also drops you off quite close – just get off at Plaza de Espana. Tickets cost €2 per trip; although you can save money by buying in bulk (a multi-person 10-ride ticket for zone 1 costs €9.45). If you’re planning to do a lot of sightseeing, you can also take the hop on/hop off Barcelona Tourist bus (€30 for two consecutive days).
