Turia River Gardens
The Turia River Garden is Valencia’s largest set of gardens that is home to biking routes, jogging trails, bridges, and everything else you can imagine inside a park. This urban garden was a river that bordered the center until it flooded in 1950’s. Since then it has been reformed into what we see today and is a great place for leisure.
At the end of the old Turia River Garden is Cabecera Park, a man made park designated to replicate the land that was once there before. Situated within the park is also Valencia’s zoo, the Bioparc, where you can see animals from all over the world. Discover more about Cabecera Park!
