Clean, pretty, enjoyable

The park is lovely, not too big, but not too small. Very clean and tidy. There is a play park for children also. Nice place for a picnic by the lake.

There is... More

My wife and me visit this park every year when we go to Lugano and it always impress us with its marvelous beauty. I like especially its design, different flower beds and swans. Great thanks to the Lugano authorities for this nice plcace!

Right on the lakeshore at the middle of Lugano’s lakefront promenade, unpretentious and quiet, really nice spot to enjoy the beauty of the lake. The Belvedere Sculpture Garden is a kind of outdoor art gallery, dotted with colourful flower beds, shrubs, trees and a collection of modern art.

Nice modern restaurant which offers something other than the usual boring dishes in Lugano. The problem is inconsistency in both service and food. It would appear to depend on whether there is a show/concert next door as this restaurant also does catering for theatre next door . Also time you go if it's too close to the close ie. 45... More

I walked many times in this park and always found something beautiful to look at, flowers and trees blossoming and some days a week there are events, chairs to sit and books to read.

Very nice and extremely clean (I saw a man cleaning trash bins there, something I haven't seen anywhere before) park in Lugano. It was a pleasure to take a walk there.

I was visiting Lugano only for 2 days, but I made sure to walk through this park due to its ranking and ratings on tripadvisor! It was definitely worth it. A beautiful and quiet park to walk around, with a good viewpoint looking toward the city. There are lots of beautiful flowers and trees, even in winter, and also lots... More

Came to Lugano for a day trip on January 1st and this is my favorite spot! Perfect for a nice little walk and sitting, enjoying the sun. The weather was quite warm for this time of the year and it was interesting to see palm trees in Switzerland. The park is appropriate for all age groups and has a great... More
