Parco Ducale, open to the public, contains 3.2 km (2 mi) of tree-lined avenues. Ottavio Farnese gave the mandate in 1561 to architect Giovanni Boscoli to begin construction on a family residence. Subsequent rulers expanded the green space and gave the people of the city access. Joggers often exercise here. Bring picnic food and a blanket to relax in the shade. Services such as toilets or restaurants may not be available. Add Parco Ducale and other attractions to your Parma trip itinerary using our Parma trip planner .
Parco Ducale Reviews
Bellissimo parco al centro della città, che per la sua grandezza, fruibilità e posizione, potrebbe essere da 5 stelle, e invece...

In the hands of the immigrants who make their personal toilet at all hours of the day on every corner, poor security inside, at all times that I was her morning and afternoon, I think I only saw him once a few municipal agents between the other outside, but maybe I was just lucky I. A great pity because it is a great Park to relax and to entertain children in nature, if this were insured.
Parco che viene purtroppo trascurato dalla municipalità di non Parma. Mi sarebbe piaciuto intitolare la recensione “Droga a Parma e dove trovarla”, e con questo dico tutto. Una bella passeggiata autun... more »Park that is sadly neglected by the municipality not to Parma. I would have liked to call the review "Drugs in Parma and where to find it", by which I mean everything. A nice walk in the autumn can safely appreciate maneuvering between bandits, taking care not to swerve across the various paths and gardens, if you do not want to encounter some unpleasant syringe. The Park is really nice but invariably left in disarray.

A good (not great) place for families and kids. The park itself could be kept a bit better, there is no real playground, besides 2 swings and 1 slide. Kids can ride a small train though (4 rides for 2 Euros if I remember well). It's on the very left from the entrance at the end of the bridge on the river. They rent small tricycles called grilli, kids love them (you pay 2 Euro for 15 minutes). There is a small lake as well. Plenty of parking between the park and the river.
Very pleasant park. Small kiosk with out door tables for drinks and snacks. Good for running. Good for strolling. Children's play area. Dog park. Many benches.
All right park, a good get away location. However, as i seems in all parks in Parma there many shady people just sitting around. They are also offering drugs...
Parc is big and with great old, high trees, here you could escape the heat and strong summer sun. But you have a big problem: there are not enough benches, where you could rest. The few existing ones are fully occupied by African refugees that have nothing to do the whole day, but sit and wait and listen to loud music on their phones.
It's a centrally located park in Parma, Italy. A beautiful lake in the centre having a track around for jogging. A Nice and calm location for morning walks. One can fully relax and spend quality time as benches have been provided at many places under tall trees. A very cool and relaxing atmosphere inside. It's a wonderful place to visit. It's my favourite in Parma.
