A large green area in the Latina district with views of the city’s historic centre.
La Cuña Verde de Latina Park is a large green area with an elongated shape in the neighbourhood of Lucero. Construction on the first phase of the park began in 1991 and it was later enlarged, absorbing areas that had contained slums in the 1960s. It now boasts an area of 65 hectares and is connected on one end to Casa de Campo Park and on the other to the nearby San Isidro Park.
It’s an expansive green area with some singular spaces and features, such as two viewpoints in different parts of the park whose height provides a nice view of La Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace. It has multiple children’s areas including a pirate boat, as well as sports facilities like a rock-climbing wall and a cycle path.
The park contains several rose gardens, three shallow water features and a footbridge that goes over Calle de Caramuel, a nearby street. Traces of the past remain at the site known as Mica Hill, where a cluster of strongholds from the Spanish Civil War were placed due to its prime location at a height that offered a view of the city’s defence positions.
