About Idroscalo, Segrate

The Idroscalo is an artificial lake in Milan, Italy that was originally constructed as a seaplane airport. It opened on 28 October 1930, in the heyday of seaplanes. When the use of seaplanes for passenger transport declined it became a recreational and sport facility. The lake is 2,600 m (8,500 ft) long and was constructed in the late 1920s. Its width ranges from 250 m (820 ft) to 400 m (1,300 ft) and depth from 3 m (9.8 ft) to 5 m (16 ft). It is situated between the municipalities of Segrate and Peschiera Borromeo, just within Milan's city limits and near Linate Airport.

Idroscalo, Segrate Reviews - Write a Review

  • A beautiful park, surrounding a long lake that was once used as a runway for seaplanes. Some bars, restautrant, swimming pools and even a rowing club. A bit crowded in some of the summer's weekends, but generally very calm. On clear days, from the lake you get a stunning view of the mountains around Milan. And apart from the parking fee, it-s free!

  • Lovely lake with a bathing area and sunbathing lawn (covered in dog poo). Water fountains were well places by the bathing area. The toilets were however not very nice, but free. It's exciting for plane lovers too as they take off from nearby Linate airport.

  • If you are in Milan and want to spend good time in nature, have fun with a picnic, relax well come here at the Idroscalo.yoi can also rent a cayak

  • very big park with a lake in the middle and looks like a forest with much greenary but the transportation is not really good to visit the place.

  • Best public garden in Milan
