The park is divided into two sections: one features Italian and English gardens, with manicured flower beds and tree species from around the world, while the other is more wild, with a forest of oak, lime, plane, and maple trees. This area also houses the natural history museum and a convention center.

    Is above all a perfectly preserved Park from experts and loving gardeners, all year round, there are no less than 20 different types of birds, in addition to waterfowl, is ideal for families with children to whom is reserved an area with toys and with regular maintenance, for adults reading area with lounge chairs and a decent small library , all free. Finally in summer a small Bay with beach allows sunbathing and water into the Lake. In short, a pleasant place for relaxation and beyond.

  • Beautiful park with absolutely stunning sunset views! I'd say the night view is much prettier than the day view because of the sunset hues and lit town lights.. Really romantic feel at night 👍
  • Wonderful park! Very good taken care of, offers a beautiful view towards the lake. During rainy and sunny days, a walk through the park has a special charm.
  • Excellent park with amazing views towards the lake and mountains. Good accessibility for wheelchair users. Really like the raised timber platform/nature trail which enables visitors to explore the area near the lake.
  • Wonderful place with wonderful views, clean and colorful in Spring. You can come here for a morning jog or just take a stroll by the lake... Anythig will work, it's a really pleasant place.
  • Beautiful and quiet park. My kids played at the playground on rhe east entry of the park. Obviously it is NOT quiet there...

Where to stay in Lugano

Picturesque Lugano is known for its deep blue bay and the palm tree-lined waterfront promenade--so it only makes sense to stay close to the heart of the city, the lake. Surrounding the bay are a number of mid-range to high-priced hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts. With such an emphasis on the lake, most of the high-rise hotels have arranged their rooms and balconies in such a way that everyone has a lake view. These waterfront hotels put Lugano a step above its neighboring contenders, outbidding them in style, natural beauty, and sophistication.
