It is indeed a jam in town, fantastic for a run and perfect for a walk with children. It is just a pity that sometime rats cross the road...

I found this park underwhelming, but maybe I visited in the wrong season. After an extremely hot summer, everything looked dry and yellow. I didn't really see much of the park, but the initial impression didn't prompt me to explore more.

This park is very big, be prepared to spend at least a few hours to truly get a feel for it. It is by the river, the Medieval Village is outstanding, the Castle is gorgeous. You can go canoeing, or have sit and a beer by the river. The garden is like nothing I have ever seen. Great way to... More

The park is always full of people. The Medieval castle and town was actually constructed in the 19th century as an educational project, and it's really interesting how accurate they were (if romanticizing some aspects a bit). Worth it to take the guided visit, and if you're a fan of flowers and herbs, the herb garden is small but detailed... More

It becomes part of an interesting walk from the Umberto Bridge to the Castello del Valentino [ now the Architect's Institute ] and this plus a lovely walk along the Po River ; maybe a boat cruise to break the journey; and return along Corso Marconi to downtown, make for a great, great day out. A distance of about 5... More

This large park offers something for everyone, especially on a sunny day. My girls rode bikes and roller blades, played on the park toys and walked along the river. I enjoyed the exercise equipment and being outdoors. A nice change from the museums and royal palaces!

Would have loved to have spent some more time here but alas that wasn't to be and we walked through after a visit to the Museum of Human Anatomy. However we did have a very enjoyable stroll through the gardens and along the river bank back to the main road. Nice to see so many families enjoying time here with... More

A lovely outdoor part worth seeing. Beautiful flowers, and sculptures, a restful walk along the river. A break from the hustle of sightseeing.

when you consider that it is situated in an idustrial city like Turin, then it is a sigh of relief for the locals to spend some time there for relaxation. But if you are a traveller, then you will agree that the park is nowhere nead the English Garden in Munich or Hyde Park in London.It is nice to take... More

Amazing strolls along the Po river. Part of the 175km of cycling paths along the city of Turin, it hosts the so called 'Borgo Medievale' a 1884 reconstruction of a Middle Ages village.
