Nice park, some wildlife
Oct 2019
This is a pretty good park if you want to see some birds, maybe a deer or two, nice flowers and trees. Im always looking for inexpensive places to visit and away from the maddening crowds, this park fit the bill for me. It is an old park, several hundred years old. Some interesting trees including Giant sequoias from North America. As far as birds go, ducks, chickens, geese, swans, peacocks, The trees in the park bring an abundance of other birds so if you have them, bring your binocs! There are deer here too, they are on a small island surrounded by a moat.

Nice Park
Oct 2018 • Couples
Parque de La Taconera is a lovely park in the centre of Pamplona. We actually walked through the park on our first day in Pamplona, from the train station to our hotel; a walk that took us about 40 minutes. We enjoyed it quite a lot. We also managed to return to the park once more two days later. We had a great time. The park is quite large with lots of trees and landscaped areas, with beautiful plants and nice flowers. There are numerous benches where visitors can sit and relax and enjoy the park. There are water fountains and surprisingly there is quite a bit of wildlife as well. We saw several different types of animals and birds, such as peacocks, chickens, ducks, swans and others. It was such a delight to see and it really made our day. During our visit we did not see many people there, probably owing to the season. This is a really terrific park and we would highly recommend a visit there.

A quite moment during our visit of the town centre.

The park is an interesting place and meanwhile a place for a break during strolling through the busy old town of Pamplona. The park houses a number of ancient military fortifications such as the Vuelta del Castillo, the Citadel forms the large green lung of Pamplona. An area of ​​280,000 square meters of which the pavilions, moats, strongholds, ravelins, fortifications, smaller buildings and glacis are now public places for leisure activities, sports and culture. The Citadel, the most important urban design reference point in Pamplona, ​​is also considered the best example of the military architecture of the Spanish Renaissance and one of the most striking defenses in Europe.
The Citadel was created to defend Pamplona against enemies. In 1571, Philip II commissioned the construction, with the intention of combating the continuous attacks of the French army. The original structure was in the shape of a regular pentagon, with bastions on all corners.

Wildlife in the city

Beautiful park in the city between Casco Viejo (old town) and modern Pamplona. Park has many deer, swans, birds, and other wildlife that just live there. The grounds are kept nicely.

Beautiful stroll with the family
Sep 2018 • Family
Nice walk with the family. Lots of animals to see.. ducks, chickens, roasters, peacocks, finches, pheasants, swans. There was an old fountain my son had un playing in. If you plug one hole, the water comes out harder from another and he got me wet. Great afternoon.

Wildlife surprise!
May 2018 • Couples
We stumbled across this park and found it was a safe haven for deer and birds. We followed the paths in and around the park. There were beautiful trees, ponds, and then a familiar noise, Peacocks! Lots of different species of birds located in an area we (Jo public) couldn't gain access to. The weather was gorgeous and the park was peaceful, we thoroughly enjoyed wondering around.

Not overly exciting but a pleasant stroll in the park along the city walls of Pamplona-Iruna with a compound populated with various species of birds and deer. I didn't expect to see this wildlife so centrally in this city - but where were the bulls hiding?

Wonderful surprise so close to the center
Apr 2018 • Family
Between the beautiful paths lined with flowers and trees, and the open field of all types of birds and deer, you won’t miss a thing. The nature is the first sight when you arrive here from the center and as you delve in deeper you reach the ‘open zoo’. Amongst the residents are swans, ducks, roosters and peacocks. A delight for kids, we spent here some time staring at the activity, and even caught the glimpse of a peacock opening its wings and 2 angry/crazy birds chasing each other. Especially if you have kids (but even if you don’t) this is a must see.
