Large park, plenty of space & attraction.

A good route into the city from the outskirts. Has a large pond, statues & monuments. There is a café/ restaurant open in fine weather. Popular cycle route.

A nice park just a couple of minutes walk from the old centre of Parma - across the river. Several footpaths. A stall with food/drinks. A small lake with fish (strange ones), tortoises and birds.

A really nice and relaxing walk around the park. It was great to see so many people out enjoying their Sunday by strolling in the park. At the end, you can take a drink from a walk up bar and sit on a bench and relax.

We were able to walk through the park from our hotel to get to the downtown area. It was lovely and a nice change from the city center.

Just a very nice park for walking, people watching, eating gelato!! We took a picnic and enjoyed several hours of relaxing under the trees. Very easy to get to from city center.

Europe is full of better examples of grand parks like this. This one doesn't have much to make it stand out, no special educational arboretum or garden, no specialty. I suppose it is big for a small city, and I would be very pleased if this were my neighborhood park, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see... More

Parco Ducale is close to the Star Hotel du Parc, so a lot of hotel guests use it for nice stroll after long and tedious business day. The park is also favourite for local citizens, who tend to go here for a run or stroll with kids or friends.

Join the residents of Parma and visit the Parco Ducale on a Sunday morning for a walk, a run, a bike ride, a coffee in the open air cafe, a game of chess or cards under the trees, throwing a ball to the dog, playing forbidden football with your toddler, watching the ducks, whatever. And relax ... who needs sightseeing?

As a lover of parks and gardens, I was under the impression this was going to be a beautiful park. It's nice in that you can escape the tourists and shops, but as far as landscaping and gardens, it needs a lot of work. Don't get me wrong, it's still nice to stroll through and the man made lake is... More
