  • My mother loves to take walks in the beautiful parks of Lugano, one whose Ciani Park, bring the bread to swans and ducks, funny how they already expect the food)). The Park very clean, lots of flowers in every season, beautiful views over Lugano and monte San Salvatore, air with a scent of wild berries in the city centre, almost-loved.

  • Very nice clean relaxing park. The view of the mountains and the lake is really beautiful and the flowers make it even more beautiful.. Nice for a walk while enjoying your ice cream

  • 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!
