Casa de Campo, s/n
Madrid

The Casa de Campo is a large park covering an area of around 4450 acres of woodland. They are renowned as the main green areas in Madrid and were designed in 1560 at request of the king, Felipe II, as he wanted to have a hunting area near the palace. The gardens were opened in 1931. The most significant feature of these gardens is the artificial lake, where rowing-boats can be rented. It is also possible to do many sports in the area, such as tennis or swimming. Moreover, this park is home to Madrid Zoo, the attraction park Parque de Atracciones de Madrid, and it has a cable car, teleférico, that links it to Parque del Oeste.
