“very beautiful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Park with beautiful flowers and fantastic view of the lake. We took very beautiful photos with view of the lake. At the end of the park is a swiiming place. It s worth to visit, walk at the park and sit somewhere for relax and enjoy the scenery.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Nice and clean, it is jut a shame there are doing building works during the summer. The playground is great for kids.

“Take a break ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Perfect to take a break and admire the lake. It's full of flowers and there is a car park nearby (Palazzo dei Congressi). However, I expected to find a bigger park but it's worth the visit especially if you go in summer and want to find some shade.

“Nice for a stroll, a break, and look at flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautifully maintained park in the center of the city. They replant beautiful flowers according to season. The big trees hanging down into the lake offer plenty of opportunities for pictures of the lake. You can see Campione across the lake.
Plenty of benches in the park for a quick rest, or to have a sandwich that you bought in town.
Like other Swiss parks, there are no concession stands in the park. But just outside the entrance on the city side there is an ice cream stand for a refresher. On another corner, there is a pretty good restaurant that is a good option for lunch.

Amazing to hear the array of languages spoken by the visitors. Mixture of old people and families with small children.

Often there are some modern statues on display.

“Pleasant mid day spent here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

A quiet place with ample greenery, neat and tidy with vibrant flowers in bloom. A lot of people were there with toddlers and pets, so it was a somewhat festive atmosphere.
