We enjoyed this lovely park which has a beautiful view of Lake Lugano. We sat on one of the benches and ate apples while people watched and took in the view. Very clean park and kid friendly. Worth a longer visit next time!

Very nice for strolling around the lake. Old impressive trees and beautiful flowers. Visit the small place that rents out free books halfway.
