One sunny Sunday, we decided to head to the southern part of the city to explore one of it’s newest award-winning sites: Parque Madrid Río. Recently awarded Harvard’s renowned Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design prize, we made the trip and to see what all the fuss was about.
Located near Estadio Vicente Calderón, home of the Atlético Madrid football club (metro stop Pirámides), this 10 kilometre stretch of greenspace runs along the banks of the Manzanares River. Covered in manicured gardens, bike paths and trails, Parque Madrid Río really encourages residents to get outside, and with such a beautiful space it’s hard to stay away.
