This lovely park is just 15 minutes from the hectic Piazza San Marco. The kids had a lot of fun relaxing in the shade, boat watching by the pier and running around. Our guidebook (Venice and Lake Garda with Kids) recommended two more parks in...More
We walked to the park this morning, and it is a nice 20 minute walk from St. Marks. The park itself is very pleasant with lots of shade trees, paths for strolling, and benches for relaxing. And my husband who is a bird watcher spotted...More
A truly lovely park, an enjoyable stroll from all the bustle of St Mark’s, that shows a completely different side to Venice. Calm and peaceful. The path by the water gives great views across the lagoon.
Beside the Biennale area you will find this gardens. There are really less tourists and much more Venetians who are living in this area. Like the whole part of Castello there is
the real life outside of the hordes of tourists of San Marco. The...More
The park is only a couple of stops on the Valporetto from St Mark's or a pleasant stroll along the waterfront. It is a park of two halves; the gardens facing onto the water with their lawns, trees and sitting areas which are a pleasant...More
We walked along the waterfront from San Marco to escape the crowds. Only about a 20 minute walk. Very pleasant. Close to art exhibition. Small playground and grass areas with benches. We were bitten by insects so use insect repellent
After three visits to Venice we have never made it down to the Giardini Pubblici in Castello, it is quite a walk from St.Mark's Square but well worth it to get away from the massive crowds. The garden was initiated by Napolean as Venice's first...More
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

The gardens are pleasant and a good place to sit on a bench for a spell of people watching. I like spending time there and there is a cafe (expensive) for a snack or a drink. But the gardens are not like those you will find in England... There are a few rose bushes in beds intermingled with statues but not great floral displays. Good place if you have children as there is a playground with equipment. I agree with Ian, not a must see if you have a full programme - I like spending time there as it is just less than a minute away from the apartment I use.
