Barcelona is full of wonderful surprises – it is up to the smart traveller to veer off the beaten track and discover what this city has to offer. The Parc Creueta del Coll is located near the Parc Guel, however this park has a strictly ‘local’ atmosphere, and is most definitely off the tourist track. It is not easy to find from the main road or the metro station as it is not signposted. Those intending on visiting should bring a map. Once you have made the trek up the hilly streets, a dip in the refreshing splash pool will make the journey worth the while! The park is located in a crater that emerged from years of quarrying in the area. It is this natural beauty that gives the park its charm. Visitors are able to climb to the top of the stairs and take in the views of the city. The main attraction to the park however, is the refreshing splash pool. For visitors who want somewhere quaint to cool down on hot days, the Parc Creueta will provide a refreshing change of scenery. A trip to Parc Creueta is a treat for those in search of a relaxing an afternoon, mixing with local Barcelonans.
