  • 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!
