They look like roses but they are not. Those flowers come from Japan and every bush in the garden is of different color! Takes about 20 minutes to explore the park and it's free!

This little hidden garden is simply beautiful! Ideal to read a book or just relax there. Its next to the lake and an open beach, so you can visit it on your way there or back!

Stopped by while visiting Locarno for the camellia show. Pretty location near the lake with a great view. Many different kinds of camellias to admire. Worth a trip.

One of the most important Camellia Shows in Europe. With over 250 variations. Take a peaceful walk through this amazing park, stop and sit on one of the wooden benches and just take in the beautiful panorama of Lago Maggiore.

A really nice undertaking, however still a young and small park, should become better and better every year though!

I walked for 45 minutes to find this park but it was locked. Despite the advertised opening hours, I was faced with a big padlock on the gates. Very disappointed. Could only see the plants near the fence.
