Doña Casilda Park

With a long history of almost 100 years now (its construction started in 1907), Doña Casilda Park is the main park in town. It was designed in Romantic style by the architect Ricardo Bastida and the engineer Juan de Eguiraun. From its early days on, it has been renewed and embellished, preserving the charm coming from its wonderful pond full of ducks and its typical biscuit sellers, a indelible scenery in the mind of every Bilbao dweller. Recently, the park’s infrastructure has been improved and extended to include a classical merry-go-round, two basketball pitches, a dancing water s fountain, a stage for live performances (called La Pérgola , or “pavilion”), and the Fine Arts Museum café, whose terrace looks onto the park, now being extended to reach the refurbished Abandoibarra area.
