We took a walk through a quiet park in November with a light drizzle in the air. A thick canopy of trees turning colors in the fall. A small pond with ducks and geese at one end. A nice oasis away from the concrete city.

I enjoyed cycling within the park and cutting through it to get to certain destinations. I was there mostly on a weekend and there were lots of people enjoying the park. Be sure to visit the cafe and people-watch as you sip your drink. There is a play area for kids but otherwise the park is for strolling and hanging... More

what a great place we spent a sunday morning here and had a good walk, fed the ducks, saw all the local action, and wish this park was closer to where we live

You would never believe this park was so close to the city centre as it is just so calm and peaceful. Visiting at the start of autumn, the trees were so picturesque and, although I originally used it as a short cut to the city in the early morning, I returned later because it had such a beautiful, restful atmosphere.

I love this park and always try to go and see the turtles in the pond when I visit Parma. Lots of joggers.

Located across the river behind the Theatro Farnese, this is a beautiful park with a lake containing Carp at one end. Half way from the entrance to the lake is a little coffee kiosk with plenty of tables. Yet another nice surprise which Parma has.

This park simply felt tired and a bit neglected. With its broad shaded walkways you can tell that it was once grand but today it feels as though it could use some sprucing up. The small pond with ducks is fun for the kids and the trees do provide a bit of shade from the summer sun. It would make... More
