A great park. I live in Parma, and Parco Ducale with Parco Cittadella are the most beautiful park of this city. The first one is in downtown and have also a lake with turtles and other animals and a new dog area, where you can bring your dog. A must see!! :)

A bit of an oasis close to the centro storico. Spending time here gives you a glimpse into the lives of locals as kids play, pensioners chat, people feed the ducks or feed themselves ice cream.

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
