Madrid, Spain

Parque del Oeste & Santander Park

Parque del Oeste is located beside the Arguelles/Moncloa district of Madrid.  This route provides a varied 5K route around streams, lakes, rolling hills, and the famous Templo de Debod, an ancient Egyptian temple which was dismantled and rebuilt in Madrid. This park used to be the city’s landfill, but has now become a place of beauty, one of many stunning parks in Madrid. The route wanders the perimeter of the park, providing an easily accessible route right in the city center. It’s possible to do about 5k within the park.

Add-Ons: Just to the north, ~1 km of additional paths in Parque Jaime del Amo, location of the Museum of the Americas and observation tower. Can also do laps around the 1.2 km running track around Santander Park (Parque Santander), which is 1.3 km northeast, using Paseo de S. Fco. de Sales. Can also combine with Casa de Campo, just to the west.  Use either the path just south of Puente de los Franceses, or the Juan Manuel Sánchez Footbridge.
