Most parks in Spain are built to give some green space to the cities and towns. They are an oasis from cement and usually have walking trails and an atmosphere inciting people to relax. While Parque Europe does have the green space, it is a park that invites families to enjoy activities that will keep everyone entertained for the entire day.

Walking around the park is an adventure in itself as there are replicas of 18 famous European monuments. Some of the replicas are built to actual size but others are a smaller version built to scale. You will see the London Bridge, Trevi Fountain, David (by Michelangelo), Eiffel Tower, Brandenburg Gate and the Puerta de Alcala among other monuments.

 You can walk across the London Bridge which crosses a lake in the centre of the park
