The dried out riverbed  was transformed into the Turia Gardens and popular with joggers, cyclists, sports enthusiasts and those enjoying a stroll.  Many top events and concerts are held in the gardens throughout the year.   If you don’t feel liking walking you can take a tour of the gardens on the small train which runs  to the City of Arts and Sciences.
