A big park full of interesting attractions such as the valentino castle and the medieval village. Walking in the river is also great. Its a lovely spot for a picnic. My favourite part was the fountain of the 12 months, that is a huge and very impressive.

beautiful walks and meeting place for the people of Turin when they are tired of the city. We ate something small (Polenta e salciccia :-)) at one of the kiosks and had a really nice afternoon.

I was given a map and the park was shown to me as a way to walk through on my way to the Piazza and is a sight to see. So I went to the park and started walking through it to my destination.. I was approached 2 times by gay men looking for a hook up saw and smelt some smelly bums, and a few tranvestite hookers looking for some customers.

Not my ideal stroll through the park but it was entertaining.

I read trip advisor reviews and went to visit this park in July 2010 - what a disappointment. It was dirty and unkempt to say the least. We got there on a Thursday at 3 pm and everything was closed. The Botanical Garden was only open for tours on Fri, Sat and Sun. The "castle" is not open to public as only for architecture studies. Finally, almost every cafe was closed and/or deserted. Public washrooms were sprayed with graffitti and a mess. This park should be bulldozed and paved over into a parking lot.

Quite frankly, the most depressing park I have ever been in. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Very big park with lots of activities inside. You have a special place where you can just relax on the grass, some terraces that serve ice cream and drinks, view to Po river, and an extra Castle inside. A day of fun and games! Pay it a visit!

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 relax.

This park provides a small oasis of peace and tranquility in this bustling city. It has a small stream running through it, is nicely laid out with flower beds and contains various kinds of trees. The stream has tiny wooden bridges which the kids found fun to run across and the gardens also have many shady spots where one can unwind. Towards the bottom of the garden (on the riverbanks of the Po) is a fake, but very pretty medieval village built during the 1800's for some exhibition (entrance to this is free). The castle within this village can also be visited for a small fee however it was closed on the day we were there.

This really is a lovely park, close to the river.
It's kind of informal but very well kept.
It has a nice aspect.

Great to have some grass amid the city, along with some hill/river/grassy/church views, and a perfect place to chill with a book and other sunbathers and dog walkers after the riverside walk down from Ponte Regina Margherita, but sometimes you get pestered a bit if you’re a young woman on your own - maybe just one particularly annoying visit put me off
