Parque Doña Casilda Iturrizar, Bilbao

The Basics

Sometimes known as Duck’s Park, this urban green space is the ideal spot to escape the hustle and bustle of Bilbao’s popular Old Quarter. Given its popularity, many city tours pass by the park, although art lovers may wish to combine a visit to Doña Casilda Park with tours of the nearby Bilbao Fine Arts Museum and Guggenheim. Meanwhile, families will particularly appreciate the children’s playground, rowboat rental options, and basketball courts. Other highlights include the numerous sculptures, fountains, and a pergola, as well as riverside views.
