“Enjoy, relax,admire the views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Great park, with lots of shade and grass to relax. Enjoy the view of the lake and the flowers. Halfway is a small building that sells coffee and ice cream. But they offer free books and folding chairs! So take a book & a chair, find a spot and relax.
The museum of natural history in the park is small and hard to find (entrance not via the park,but the main road). All the signs,video and audio in Italian only .... pity,as it looked quite interesting!

“Wonderful place to walk around and learn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

This place is a beautiful place where locals walk around, sit in benches and let the time go freely relaxing , you must do the same so buy an ice cream and enjoy the locals passing by dresses very fashioned, take some pictures and enjoy the water, if you like you can rent paddle boats which are really expensive like everything in this country, was there day and night never felt unsafe, of course coming from Houston Texas where crime is high this is a peaceful city lol.

“A relaxing place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

A Swiss manicured park with lots of benches to sit by the lake in quiet surroundings. Only five minutes from the centre of town. We ventured on across the small river to the restaurant/ café at the yacht marina - to find it busy with locals (and their children on Saturday) . Always a good sign.

“Avoid at late evening / night.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

AVOID the park at late evening or at night. Much criminality and gangs swarming around the park and checking you out. You feel unsafe.

“Beautiful City Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The flowers were already amazing colours in April, the park is a nice place to walk and isn't to big that you can't get through.
We enjoyed feeing the ducks and swans.
