The Turia Gardens is a public park of 110 ha. It is the largest purely urban garden of Spain.
In order to prevent the flooding that the city periodically suffered from, the river Turia was diverted, vacating a large swath of land that crossed the city from west to east, surrounding the historic center. It has now been turned into parks and gardens with various sports and leisure areas.
Having a length of 9 km from “el Parque de Cabecera” to the Oceanographic, The Turia Gardens (former riverbed) is today the most visited park in the city of Valencia.
Ideal for children, Gulliver Park is located in the old Turia River. The big attraction is the protagonist of the story “Gulliver’s Travels” upon his arrival at Lilliput. The entrance is free.
