Bilbao Things to Do: 363 reviews and 898 photos
Dª Casilda de Iturrizar was the widow of a prosperous businessman from Bilbao, Mr Epalza, in the 19th century. She was a well-known philanthropist and maecenas of the arts. The thankful citizens of Bilbao erected a monument to her memory on the Plaza Federico Moyúa, which was transferred later to the city's main park. This was named subsequently after her, but many people in town simply call it the Park of the Ducks.
The Doña Casilda de Iturrizar Park is the main green area in central Bilbao. It is a garden à l'anglaise projected in the early 20th century, with well kept green lawns, a pond, sculptures of different styles and several paths.
