The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

Yuck !

There used to be a water feature ........no more......there used to be a library .......no more....like most of the parks in Barcelona it’s dirty and falling to pieces and increasingly the realm of the homeless used to either sleep or store their belongings . It’s fairly safe during the day when people exercise their dogs and kids play but be careful after and even around dusk.

Plenty of lush trees for welcome shade
May 2020 • Solo
We are fortunate enough to overlook this park from our rooftop patio.
An ideal park for jogging and other forms of exercise including yoga and table tennis.
During the day there are plenty of families here taking advantage of the time slot for families during the ongoing State of Alarm. However, the play areas with where the swings and slides are located are still cordoned off.
From Carrer de Diputacio as you go into the park, walk to the other side heading towards Tarragona metro station and you'll find a large patio are with an art sculpture and a small expanse of water. Three ping pong tables are close to here once you pass the fire station

Great for kids

Great activity if you’re traveling with kids. Many different areas with playgrounds and parrot crowded trees, open spaces to play frisbee or just sit and have the kids chasing pigeons. Has a big nice iconic Miró sculpture.

As I saw the Torre agbar of the bullring shopping centre roof I spotted the park. The statue itself isn't very good.

small dog friendly park with Miro sculpture
Oct 2019
The park is a small one behind the Arenas and seems to cater to the local dog owners but you will come here mostly for the Woman and Bird sculpture by Miro, its a striking modernist piece of art close to Placa d Espana but I fail to see the woman and bird , its a wonderful thing to photograph as the colours just burst out but.....

Joan Miro Park
Jul 2019 • Solo
This park is west of central Barcelona is named in honour of the surrealist artist of the same name. The park was built on the grounds of the former municipal slaughter house, and is pretty park area that features lots of lovely tree lined paths as well some gardens. There's a library located at the eastern edge of the park, although it's more for locals than tourists.

There's an artificial water channel that runs along the park, but it was dry when I was there. And just in case, you still don't see any connection to the artist, there a giant 22-metre-high monumental sculpture Dona i Ocell by Joan Miró at the north west end of the park.

Not a must see, but worth a quick detour if in the Plaça d'Espanya area.

Nice Park near the Futbol Stadium.....
Jun 2019 • Couples
On our first visit to Barcelona we visited the Place de Espanya and did some sightseeing in the area. We took the elevator to the top of the Arenas Shopping Mall...It is an outdoor walkway at the top of the old stadium that has been converted to a large multi-level shopping center.

The views from the walkway were pretty amazing. As we walked around you get unobstructed views of the plaza, government buildings, and Park of Joan Miro. The park is a beautifully landscaped area with palm trees, monuments. and nice open spaces.

Decent parm
May 2019 • Solo
This is an artificial park mostly near Plaça d’Espanya.

Mainly made of sandy grounds, some seem to be dedicated to dogs and their owners. Decent walk, but Barcelona definitely has much nicer parks like Guell and Cuitadella.

Eye of the beholder indeed!

We enjoyed a very happy afternoon here with our daughter, so you can imagine my surprise at all the negative comments by prior reviewers! The park is home to Dona i Ocell, which I found more captivating in person than I had expected. However, the BIG attraction is not the art but the living. If you are looking for a botanical wonderland inspired by Joan Miró’s great works, you should keep looking. If, however, you are looking for a peaceful afternoon amongst and with the locals, this park is a gem!

The park is split roughly in half by a wide, even walking path festooned by vibrant flora (primarily bougainvillea). The Dona is well-displayed with a reflecting pool in a corner on one side of the park, where it abuts a shaded pavilion-performance area. The rest of that side of park has a landscaped area with lawns, which have a lot of central wear due to both dogs and children at play, and some courts for ball sports. (Didn’t look closely enough to be able to say what kind - sorry!)

Main features on the other side of the park are the library, a water feature (that is currently drained so not 100% sure if just for viewing), and play spaces for all ages. The grounds (aside from those previously mentioned) are sand, dotted with palms for shade, occasional other shrubs (particularly in a section I think of as the ‘reading/meditation zone’, and benches. There is a reasonably-sized enclosed dog play area, a large space for ~6 volleyball nets/games (2 happening while we were there), a section with ~6 table tennis tables (2 in use while we were there), a section for ~4 courts for a smaller yard/ground sport (perhaps pétanque??), at least 4 playgrounds/play structures for children of differing ages, a zip line for children, and probably more.

We were there in a drizzle around 5pm on a cool Sunday, and the park positively teemed with locals and good cheer. We look forward to coming back for more afternoon fun throughout the week, which can then wrap up with tapas at La Terraza Miró - exceptional on all counts and perfectly located under the watchful presence of Dona i Ocell!

A park!
Oct 2018 • Couples
When we first saw Park of Joan Miro we did not realise it was actually a park. Nothing indicated that there was a park in that area. We did see the huge "Woman and Bird" sculpture by Joan Miro. We were at a loss to explain why it was there! Later we realised this was a park..... Barcelona has so many wonderful things, places and spaces, and then it has other spaces such this park. This is a sad place more than anything else, despite it having been landscaped with palms and pines and other things. Locals perhaps love it, but for us not very impressive!
