València's new green área, the Parque Central , is an area located between Ruzafa and Malilla with more than 100,000 square metres of land. A perfect space to go with children or pets and go for a walk among abundant vegetation, recreational areas and fountains. Do you want to escape the bustle in the center? This is your place!
The project, which starts with the burying of the train tracks, was designed by the American landscaper Kathryn Gustafson. It forms a huge structure of promenades and water trails that connect different spaces to each other. In addition, it maintains the old protected railway buildings, which give the park the charm of the old railway stations. Ausiàs March's poem 'Aigua plena de seny' inspired the design of the park, where light, water and green, with a thousand trees, 85,000 shrubs and 13,000 planters are the protagonists.
If you are going to visit the Central Park you will discover one of the most complete spaces in the city: children's areas with a climbing wall, slides or water games; an area for dogs (delimited by a metal fence, games for dogs, litter bins, among other services); and areas for resting or walking.
The main entrance is on calle Filipinas, in the Plaza de las Artes, and has eight entrances in total, two on Peris and Valero Street, one on Doctor Domagk Street and the five in the calle Filipinas. Come and enjoy the Central Park!
