Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Covering an area the size of four city blocks, the old slaughterhouse ('escorxador') was demolished in 1979 to provide some much-needed parkland, although there’s little greenery. The rows of palms and pines are dwarfed by Miró’s sculpture 'Dona i Ocell' ('Woman and Bird') getting its feet wet in a cement lake; there’s also a good playground for small kids.
