I just loved walking through this park! The rock garden with the street lamp sculptures was my favorite but I honestly loved it all. Very pretty and great people watching. We stayed in a B&B very close to the park and walked over there multiple times. If you like Central Park in NYC you'll like this too.

Near the medieval village, which as we all know is a 19c reproduction, it's a lovely park, full of squirrels and birds. Great place to jog or walk, or take a boat ride

No noise, very natural and a good escape from the city. A long walk will certainly make you happy. Nice place for sports like walking, jogging, biking a well.

We are living here for a couple of months so I thought I'd take a walk a few blocks over to check out the park. I didn't even get over to the buildings. This was 4 in the afternoon and I felt very unsafe because of all the hoodlum-looking guys hanging out all over the park in groups. Not to... More

The boat trip from here is a 45 minutes scheduled trip. 10 minutes in the queue to get a ticket and get on. 5 minutes trip up 500 yards then 25 minutes while the one way people get off and on then a 5 minute trip 500 yards back down. The locals all enjoyed it immensely but it is the... More

Beautiful, huge park along the river with many beautiful flowers & trees. Large rose garden, a Japanese style garden, waterfalls, bridges, and ponds. Also a medieval village built in 1884 for the Italian general expo to look exactly like a medieval village. Definitely worth a visit!!

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
