Garcia Lorca Park
For those looking for things to do in Granada with children outdoors, the García Lorca Park is a magnificent place to consider.
It is one of the best parks we have in the capital. Not only because it is centrally located and has well-cared-for vegetation and plants, but also because the Huerta de San Vicente is located here, which was the summer family residence of the poet Federico García Lorca.
This building is currently a House-Museum that is located in the center of the park and that you can visit as a family to learn a little more about the famous poet from Granada.
In addition, for children there are also some swings in the park and a lake with ducks and turtles that everyone likes.
Having the incredible Sierra Nevada so close to the capital, it is highly recommended to do some activity around here when visiting Granada with children.
And it is that whether in summer or winter, the mountains can offer you many activities in nature ideal to complement your trip, as well as to spend the day with the family.
And, what things to do with children in Sierra Nevada?
If you come in winter, there is no doubt that the star activity is skiing, both on your own and with a company that offers children’s courses.
But it is also possible to enjoy the snow sliding with sleds in the Hoya de la Mora, take a walk with snowshoes, take the kids to the Dreamland-Jardín Alpino enclosure to learn to ski, book an activity with a private company or go to the Mirlo Blanco Activity Park, where there is a roller coaster, magic carpet and slides at 2,100 meters of altitude!

Another of the free activities to do in Granada with children are the hiking trails.
In another previous post we already told you which are the best routes around Granada, and here we do not lack options for all tastes and levels.
Specifically, to do with the family and with children, there are some highly recommended routes, both for their simplicity and because the little ones will love them.
So we can recommend:
The Cahorros de Monachil route, a great option to do in spring or summer. It is very close to the capital and runs along the Monachil River, its main attraction being, without a doubt, the suspension bridges.
Or the Mammoth route, one of the most famous in the Lecrín Valley. It is specially designed for family tourism and that is why it is represented by the sculptures of a mammoth and a tiger. Its name is due to the discovery in the 80s of the prehistoric remains of a woolly mammoth.
Adventures in nature
