This is one of Madrid's newer parks, built in honor of the city's popular 1980s mayor Enrique Tierno Galván. Located in the southwest of the city, close to the Méndez Álvaro bus station (also known as Estación Sur), it's a sunny open park with lawns, cypresses, panoramic city views, and a Greek-style outdoor amphitheater where occasional concerts are held. It's also the site of three major family attractions: the IMAX cinema, the planetarium, and the Angel Nieto motorcycle museum (named after Spain's former world champion motorcyclist).
