Turia Gardens in Valencia
Jardin del Turia Valencia

 
 

Turia Gardens (Jardin del Turia) is a spectacular garden and the green lung of the centre of the city of Valencia. It is also one of the best places to see in Valencia.

Turia Gardens is an urban and cultural hub over 11 km long that the visitors may find variety of beautiful trees and shrub species, children’s play areas such as the famous Gulliver, sports facilities such as the Estadio de Atletismo del Turia, and culture and leisure complexes such as the
City of Arts and Sciences.

The Turia Gardens were created when the Turia River was re-channeled safely out of the city and it was decided to make the old riverbed a place for the people, offering diverse possibilities for recreation. This great green lung of the city, housing Bioparc Valencia and Oceanografic lies in close proximity to the natural park Turia, the Albufera wetlands and coastal recreational beaches. With all these natural treasures, Valencia is a "green" city unique in Spain.

For a truly exquisite and well kept garden, visit the Gardens of Turia which has been likened to a green city. For even more greenery, explore the surrounding mountains and mountain villages which have been undisturbed by touristic developments. Bike, trek or drive through cool mountain breezes, rivers, waterfalls and the plains around Valencia containing paella paddy fields and orange groves. A visit to Turia Gardens is one of the best things to do in Valencia.
