Whilst the park isn't perhaps as beautiful as it was 10 years ago (they've changed the paving) it remains an absolute gem and if you have a couple of hours to waste then this is a great place to relax. I wouldn't exactly travel from another town to see it, but if you are in Parma then it is a... More

A little green oasis in the summer scorched city. It's not very big, but it's lovely to shy away from the hoards of tourists and the hot sun. There's a pond/lake full of turtles; you can feed the pigeons, there are benches, can have a picnic... Lots of trees, not so much a flower park. Not a bad place at... More

If you happen to be in Parma and want to have a quiet place to run, this is a wonderful green area to hangout. There's also a small lake inside and it's a destination of the many city runners!

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.

very good air atmosphere for relaxing although not sufficient benches available .Lake is not very clean always due also perhaps to birds present that are fed by visitors and create a ver nice atmosphere .

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.
