This 30 acre garden, filled with Gaudi's eccentric benches, patios, buildings, walkways and more, is a wonderland for children to explore. Don't miss the dragon stair railing. The park has some nice playgrounds (segregated by age) and we recommend bringing a picnic lunch along with you.

Nearby La Casa Vicens, Gaudi Museum, and Casa Mila/ Perdera buildings are also worth a visit.

    What a wonderful website, we were so heartened to read about your stance on allergens while travelling with kids and were very pleased to be able to follow up all the very helpful links.

    Please could you let me know where the play parks in the Parc Guell are?

    Many thanks

    I am so glad that you found the articles about traveling with severe allergies helpful.

    There is one park to the right of the main entrance (and up a hill a bit) and another about midway through the park "circuit." There are helpful maps at each entrance and they will help you find the playgrounds too.
