Although we were only in Parma for the weekend, we went to the park three times -it was so lovely. Beautiful, big chestnut trees, wide walkways, charming lake with swans, small cafe for coffees/gelatos - perfectly romantic and so peaceful. All parks should be like this!

A lovely large park area to walk around, with a range of paths / grass to walk on. There are some well-shaded areas as well - especially good in the heat - although beware mosquitoes - especially in the evening! Much enjoyed by our dog!

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.
