Attractive with lots of shade under huge trees. Along with pretty flower beds it makes it a relaxing place to sit or stroll looking out over the lake.

This is a lovely park by the lake, the view of the city is beautiful. Red benches decorate the path where you can sit to rest and enjoy the view. A must do while in Lugano.

it takes about 15 to 30 minutes to walk there from the train station, but it is downhill. better take the bus from the train station to the main bus station downtown.
