  • I had to ask myself do I want to visit a minor attraction near the pleasant lakeside town of Stressa considering the plethora of great and famous locations nearby? I needn't have worried because it is...  more »

  • 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.
  • The park has nice flowers and plants but the animals in the petting zoo and cages look very neglected. Additionally the forced route through the park is very steep and with unpleasant ways. I don't think it's very suitable for families as most kids will be quickly tired because if the hill.
  • Nice relaxing atmosphere, great views, and kids get up close with some.of the animals
  • ok place to visit. nothing spectacular. the (big!!!) petting zoo is fantastic for kids.
