The story of this garden is amazing, being that it is located on the old Turia riverbed. The terrible floods caused by the river brought so much misery to Valencia that they decided to get rid of it and in its place build a garden.
The result, inaugurated in 1986, is marvellous: over several blocks (the park has a total of 110 hectares) you can walk through a green park, crossed by antique bridges over 300 old years and dotted with fountains bordered by orange trees. The Turia Garden, much more than other urban public parks, is inhabited by a marvellous serenity.
This is due to it being at a lower level of the city meaning that the noises do not disturb.
