Just lovely. A stroll through this park at any time of year is an utter joy. It is beautifully designed and maintained, with broad walkways that children can run or ride their bikes on. Good place for a picnic, too. And there's a duckpond and fountains to boot. Very central and easy to get to. Don't miss it.

This is a magnificent city and we loved our time there. It is filled with some of the most beautiful buildings you can imagine history is absolutely fascinating.

Every so often, it is nice to take a little time to relax and recover. It is unbelievable how tiring just walking around in the heat can be!

This well maintained Park gives lots of shade and areas to sit and relax. The local seem to use it a lot and it was great to spend half an hour or so there to recover.

A park with an history, used to be in bad shape, accessible to cars, now is pleasent and quite. At the entrance, on the right, the ancient Palazzo Ducale, now a police station. At the end, a big basin. Good place to rest after strolling for the city center.

We planned an easy day trip to Parma from Bologna (under an hour by train). The park is not a must-see like the Cathedral or Baptistery but we enjoyed strolling through it and if you are doing a full day trip, I'd recommend including it in the itinerary.
It’s easy to get to & entry is free. From the Pilotta Palace, cross the river and you’ll see the big black iron entrance gates in front of you.
The paths are wide, flat and even - easy for pushchairs and a very good space for small children to run around in.

Features include:
• A man-made lake with a small island in the middle and a mystery sculpture the Fontana del Trianon, made more mysterious by the fact that it is overgrown and partially hidden. Very picturesque.
• Turtles and fish – the lake is absolutely teeming with them. Some of the fish were the size of my arm and actually leap out of the water
• The Duke’s Palace - a pretty creamy coloured palazzo which was once home to Napoleon’s second wife, Marie Louise who left her home of Vienna to marry him when she was just 18. The only downside is that you can’t go inside because it is now used as offices and apartments for the Carabinieri but you can wander right up to it.
• Long avenues of shady trees, which were first planted in the mid 1500s and are very pleasant in heat of summer

I visited the park on many occasions and it's really a beautiful space inside the city of Parma.
Whether you feel like going for a morning run or afternoon walk to a peaceful apperitivo, the parc would fit your different needs.

This is one of the places that you would happily stop by after a long day of work or just walk through just so see the view. But it’s also great for the picnics and just hanging around with your friends.
I even saw some people sunbathing there!

You should be warned tho. Don’t go into the water! There is some 🐢🐢 that will bite and are fast and good hunters. So what’s out for them! There is also signs at the park but I just thought it would be good to mention it also in here.

If you visit Parma, visit also this park!

This is a really nice and large park with paved and dirt paths around the outside. Lots of people biking, walking, and running while I was there. Running was very easy and you could stay on the pavement, step onto the dirt, or break from the main loop and explore some of the middle sites/ponds, etc. Well worth your time, especially for getting some exercise!

Summer playground of the royals in the past. Royal residences now converted to government buildings are in the park. Park is quiet and not too many visitors. Great for a stroll or jog during the day. Like any public parks, we did not cut through the park at night to return to our hotel.
