Pet-Friendly Barcelona Parks

Parc Guell

Pathways through Parc Guell

After our fantastic stay in Madrid, we had high hopes for Barcelona.  And, yes, we did find a few great pet-friendly parks but, for the most part, we found Barcelona to be more difficult for the dogs than Madrid. 

Partly, this was because Barcelona is a much bigger city than Madrid, meaning that driving was more difficult and parking far more expensive (about 40 Euros/day).  It was also because Barcelona doesn't have quite as much green park space as Madrid since much of it is on the beach, and dogs are not allowed on the beach.  Lastly, the Old Town area in Barcelona is paved with cobblestones rather than sidewalks with greenspace.  

Nonetheless, we found a few great parks for the dogs while we were in Barcelona.

Beautiful Parc Guell, one of the most unique parks in the world and one of Barcelona's best attractions, is also dog friendly.  Chewy and Abby loved checking out the famous mosaic-tiled benches and the tall pillars.

Because Parc Guell is such a huge tourist attraction and packed with people, we kept the dogs on leash at all times, though we saw a few Spanish dogs walking off-leash.  Parc Guell juts into the wooded Parc Carmel and we let the dogs run off-leash through the forest there.

Parc de la Barceloneta is directly across the street from the Barceloneta beach and is a lovely green place to walk with dogs.  There is a very large fenced-in off-leash dog area in one corner of the park and Chewy and Abby met many, many Spanish dogs while there.  (Of course, this being Spain and Europe in general, all of the dogs walked off-leash even outside the fenced area but the fenced area had nice benches and water fountains for dogs who like to play with other dogs.

Parc Collsera is a green oasis just outside Barcelona. It is the largest metropolitan park in the world --- over 20 times larger than New York's Central Park --- and is mostly just undeveloped woods with hiking trails and a few picnic areas.

It's a great place to breathe in some oxygen and let your dogs wander --- though, remember to keep a close watch on dogs, because many of the paths are quite steep.

Hi, it's great to find someone who has had the experience of taking the dog with her to a city like Barcelona. We are considering taking ours and were wondering if it will be too much of a hurdle at restaurants, shops and in particular, at the beach.

Did you have any experience in that sense? A friend told me dogs were allowed to take a swim at the beach when not in high season, i.e. automn and winter. Have you got any extra information?

May, many thanks. Winston will enjoy spending holidays with us for the first time!

The antecedent annual of the TAG Heuer Replica Watches Carrera Heuer-02T was a big accord because it was a tourbillon watch from a above Swiss cast with the affiance of an acutely aggressive price. It was simple to discount the absolute superior of the tourbillon's beheading and acceptable it artlessly as a tourbillon, assuredly at a almost added affordable price. Seriously, I was abashed I would be a little aghast by a hands-on acquaintance with the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T. Part of me was assured to see omega replica watches that sacrificed too abundant "in the metal" in adjustment to be able to avowal a aggressive amount "in the ads." I will accept to abjure my expectations, though, and say that the engineers at TAG Heuer absolutely managed to accomplish wonders and actualize a watch that doesn't artlessly accomplish you feel as admitting you went for rolex replica and airy option. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T is ample and bold-looking, yes, and it does accept Heuer alert in its name, which is still rather baffling but the cheap replica watches itself, already you yield a afterpiece look, is absolutely impressive.

Some cities of this country have amazing parks. For sure, the City Hall makes great effort to keep them arranged and clean. Sometimes services like emergency tree removal are needed because even though a park is well maintained, sometimes unpredicted can happen, like a strong storm which destroys the trees or to cut off the old trees.

Not so many people travel with their pets because they don't find pet-friendly accommodations, restaurants or recreational areas in a foreign country. But if they are patient enough, they will find the best online travel packages, offers which accept their pets, as companions, if they have all the right documents with them.

An urban park is very difficult to maintain, especially if it is in an area where people have pets. The pet masters should clean after their pets, but this doesn't happen so often. Further, the City Hall must keep the park clean, nicely arranged and decorated and to remove all those old trees which can become a hazard. Only a tree shredder machine can do this job properly.
