  • I really liked this place. It's very close to the town centre, and well worth a visit. There is a nice ice cream stand just outside the gardens. Peaceful area for walking, huge variety of trees and fl...  more »
  • Just the loveliest spot to walk through or wander with your coffee or even picnic. A hidden gem and just part of the excellent promenade along the shores of Lake Lugano.  more »

  • Very nice parc in Lugano. With a great view over the lake and the city. If you ever visit Lugano, don't forget to take a walk to the park!
  • Beautiful lakeside park with many interesting sculptures and lots of colourful flowers. The only detractor being the amount of graffiti on benches, buildings etc. I don't speak Italian (or Swiss Italian) but it mostly seemed to be anti political and anti police slogans which made me think it's probably not a hugely safe park to walk around at night. I feel I should also note that whilst I was very glad there were public toilets in the park, they were extremely grim. They were small, claustrophobic metal cubicles. Malodorous is an understatement.
  • Safe, wellmaintained park. Ideal for everybody who want to have a rest.
  • A nice place for a relaxing walk along Lugano's lake. Is one of the most important open green spaces of the city and it is always well taken care of.
  • One of the most peaceful and beautiful place to visit in Lugano, nothing to say more!
