We didn't find Casco Viejo very interesting and stumbled upon this park by accident. If you climb the steep steps from Plaza Nueva, you'll end up in the park. It was a nice sunny day in late June, and we had a lovely walk in the park and enjoyed the expansive view of the city.

We walked to this park from the old town to be surprised by some of the best views of the city. Part way up the mountains this park snaked along side the river, a detour definitely worth checking out for the amazing views.

This large park is situated in the centre of Bilbao. It contains many pleasant walks along paths bordered with large trees. There is a good play area for children.

A great big park, popular for sun worshipers. Very clean and well kept.The leisurely walk to and from our holiday inn hotel took about 20 to 30 minutes each way.

if you're visiting bilbao with kids, it's a very good idea to hang in the park. the park itself is huge, spread across a large area. there's a lot of green. the place is also where locals hang for resting and chatting.

Entertaining hour watching a fiery volleyball game, played by fit blokes born 70 years ago! Everyday life at it's entertaining best. Great open space well used by Bilbao city dwellers - a great people watching spot so take a Pintxos picnic.

I had a stroll round this park one evening. Very nice relaxed atmosphere. Lots of locals walking and enjoying the evening outdoors.

The park itself doesn't seem to have any special merits, Bilbao has plenty of open spaces that are nicer. However from the nearby squares there are some good views of the city. If you're walking the Old Town I'd recommend taking the lifts from the station up here, and then walking down the steep stairs back to the Old Town... More

Extebarria park is located on the top of the stairs that start from Unamuno square in Casco Viejo, Bilbao city. It really worth the visit, prepare a small lunch and enjoy a pick nick if the day is shinny! It is really recommended for family and children, or for those travelling with pets!
