Creueta del Coll is an enclosed park with a large lake that is converted into a public swimming pool in summer, an enormous 6,000 sq metres (65000 sq ft), and wide areas where visitors can rest under the shade of the acacias. The park is one of the most popular places for meeting and taking part in leisure activities in the neighbourhood.

The park contains the sculpture Elogio del Agua, by Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida, a massive concrete claw suspended by steel cables above a flooded quarry. Another steel sculpture, Escultura (English: Totem) by Ellsworth Kelly is near the entrance gate.

Tip: this park is relatively close to Park Güell so it might be worth to plan a combined visit.
