  • Our money good and clean are not used for the maintenance of the environment and of animals, very neglected and allowed to dwell in their own dung ... it is obvious that a stable cannot be five stables but a minimum of care would be indispensabile....ci we ask how it is possible that this attraction has never been controlled as it should ... here and there in the Green several bushes emaciated and rusty materials ... not in the green movement but seeing this place we has become green with rage!

  • I go to this park since I was small and still I find it very nice. The main attraction is the section on goats, as run free and you can caress. Very nice also the botanical part. A happy return in late spring is the perfect time!

  • I've been twice in this garden, the first in April and the second in late October. Definitely the best time to the blooms is from May to September, though in April I saw so many beautiful plants already flowering. I liked the garden plant, are so beautiful that other places are unimaginable, rare species and not just pity that in late October we make very little, so I don't recommend visiting for plants (flower beds with beautiful flowers are a thing and you only see the ground). Of animals there are very beautiful and special, pity that the price isn't cheap: 9.50 € for adults and £ 6.50 for children aged three years and over. but to make happy children doing this and more ... (there are also tricks) Inside there is also a miniature train but our schedules don't match, and then we couldn't get him. The view is worth the effort that you do (PRAMS) to arrive at the top and nice

  • Nice place to bring kids to experience the outdoors. Expect up slopes on pebble paths to move around the place. Includes an animal enclosure with goats sheeps and lambs where you can pet them. Also has a nice garden with a couple of peacocks roaming around. A good 3hrs of entertainment for family with kids.
  • The park is vast, disposed on more than one level therefore keep in mind: you'll have to walk. The path is sometimes pure soil, not very stroller friendly, however you will walk in the shades of ancient trees, with a view of Lake Maggiore and the perfume of earth and flowers and every corner has a new great camer spot. Bring your children and let them discover the love for wild animals, there is an accessible enclosure with little goats, does and cute, splendid fawns. They can be fed with their own hay (beware, the goats are very friendly and curious). You will also see a number of exotic birds. The rose garden, with the ivy gazebos and flower beds is a sight to behold. On the practical side: the parking lot is spacious and free, there are many public toilets along the path and little restaurants or bar, you may also bring your own food.
  • Nice relaxing atmosphere, great views, and kids get up close with some.of the animals
  • Beautiful gardens!
  • Beautiful park to see and appreciate in all its forms. Animals, plants and flowers in the only Park close to Stresa on Lake Maggiore. You can't miss the encounter with deer, llamas and other animals free. Ideal for those who want to breathe the air of Lake Maggiore and stroll through the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen. Having a great time and the staff is really nice (the bartender near the Lake of swans is very nice). Highly recommended!
