“Le cremolose !”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The Giardino Inglese is a nicely organized place. With a lovely cafe in the middle where you can buy amazing le cremolose. But nothing particularly amazing in that place. Perfect for lazy Sunday in Palermo.

“Garden Inglese:Palermo”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The garden Inglese is a beatiaful park for everybody from the smallest to the largest.Is situated in the centre of Palermo and it has three entrances in Street Libertà, Street Duca della Verdura and in the square Francesco Crispi. It's a wonderful place to run, ride a bike, read some books but especially to stay at outdoors, a place where you can relax.It's opened from 7:30 to 20:00 and the entrance is free.
Inside the garden there are fountains, trees, many green zones, a small temple and an artificial lake; there are olso a little playground for the child and one bar when you buy water,ice-cream, candyfloss, creaps with nutella ecc. One of the best attractions for everybody is the ice rink situated in the centre of the garden. For me is a good park to spend a nice day whit my friends.

“Nice little quiet park”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

We took a stroll along here as it was on our map and it was around 11am, nice and quiet and full of people with young children playing. Pond was a bit rotten but nice otherwise.

“Refuge from Palermo's hustle”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

Compared to the Botanical Gardens this park is better maintained. It is a lovely quiet spot in the city and is used by locals for their own sanctuary. There is incredible statuary by Rutelli which is frequently overlooked by the guide books. There is no fee for entry (again, unlike the Botanical) and there is a small cafe with toilet inside.

“Quiet refuge and playpark”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

The English Garden in Palermo [Giardino Inglese] is located between Via della Liberta and Via Gen dalla Chiesa, being a significant walk from my hotel near Piazza Gulia Cesare [station square].
The gardens are mainly large trees and shrubs, but with expansive hard-paved areas.
I visited on a Sunday morning, and it was delightful to see so many family groups of locals using the hard-paved open area as space to play: Young children learning to ride little bicycles or roller blades, others blowing bubbles with toys, playing with helium-filled balloons or kicking a ball.
All the play was discreet; there were no wild or loud scenes, a quiet mood and ambience.
A central café had reasonably priced food and drink and provided the only toilet facility.
A few stall-holders offered children's toys and colourful balloons.
One purpose of my visit was to see the statue "Bambini che giocano tra gli scogli" - "Children playing on rocks' by the famous 19th-20th century Palermo sculptor, Mario Rutelli, who also made the fabulous "Fontana delle Naiadi" in Piazza della Repubblica, Rome, and other works.
I recommend the English Gardens, Palermo as a quiet place for personal reflection and for families with energetic young children who need space to play and burn off their energy!
