“Evening Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Lugano's lakefront promenade ends in Parco Civico, a beautiful park with flower gardens, outdoor modern art & stunning sunset lake views. Its a city of lovers. Sit down on a bench, savor a gelato and watch the lights come on and reflect off the lake.

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”

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.
