We didn’t plan to visit this park but walked through it just as a way to avoid the many touts surrounding the colosseum. The park has the potential to be nice and it looks like it is from the road but as we ventured further in we found that a lot of the routes were blocked off, the park was not well taken care of and the bins were all overflowing very badly to the point where there was rubbish everywhere that had been blown around. The area didn't feel particularly safe so wouldn't want to walk through there at night! Perhaps due to covid there hasn’t been the time to give it the care it needs (although judging by other reviews it sounds like it is always like this!) It's a shame really as the view of the colosseum from the hill is great and there are some interesting looking ruins at the top and also a statue near the bottom closer to the colosseum and I think with some proper care it could be quite a nice park.

We passed through this park in order to get to and from Rome Colosseum. It’s quite charming in the respect that you can see the Colosseum slowly emerge on one aids which built anticipation for our visit. There are good photograph opportunities, numerous benches and in close proximity to nearby restaurants and bars like Brewdog. Didn’t get the vibe it would be a nice park at all hours of the day though – some less fortunate folk could be seen here so I would stick to the park during daytime if I had to.

My friend and I just stayed at a small hotel near this park and we walked through this park at all different hours both day and night. This is a residential park so several locals walk their dogs here in the morning, throughout the day and evening. Saturday morning we have breakfast at this little cafe there in the park, several locals go there, called Da Nunzia al Colle Oppio. Children were playing, locals talking, and on that Saturday, Sept 21st a local choir was singing hymns acapella. Police are present off an on in the park, there are areas where there is trash but 80% of the park is clean, there are homeless especially at night who keep to themselves. To me this was a normal neighborhood park you would encounter in any big city and very lovely to visit - especially for the very sweet outdoor cafe!
