Jardins de Joan Brossa
Jardins de Joan Brossa Barcelona Montjuic hill. Joan Brossa Gardens. Named after Spanish/Catalan poet Joan Brossa. (all the parks on Montjuic hill are named after Catalan poets.) Lovely park on Montjuic hill on area which used to be a former Montjuïc fun-fair. Great for picnics in an uncrowded and quiet park with nice views of Barcelona.

The park has many interesting species of trees and four lovely statues of famous entertainers which were erected for the former funfair and are now dotted around the gardens which are the statues of Spanish/Catalan clown Charlie Rivel (Josep Andreu i Lasserre) born in Cubelles near Barcelona, the world famous comedian Charlie Chaplin, Barcelona born Spanish flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya and Barcelona most famous gymnast Joaquim Blume.

This is a very nice park for kids too as there are playgrounds and play areas with fun musical installations for children. The main entrance is on Plaça de Dante.
