Parco Ducale - Review

Situated along the west bank of Parma river, this huge garden once belonged to Ottavio Farnese, the Duke of Parma and Piacenza. The Duke turned the place into a park for one of his villas. However, after the unification of Italy, the Municipality took over the garden made it open for general public. Within the garden the Ducal Palace is situated. This palace was actually a Visconti castle, built to protect the city walls. Recently the entire garden has been renovated to turn the park into a peaceful place. A tour in the park will bring a peace to your mind. If you have a bicycle, just hop onto it and take the bike path to move around the park as many times as you wish to.

Parco Ducale, Parma Reviews

  • All right park, a good get away location. However, as i seems in all parks in Parma there many shady people just sitting around. They are also offering drugs...

  • Very pleasant park. Small kiosk with out door tables for drinks and snacks. Good for running. Good for strolling. Children's play area. Dog park. Many benches.

  • A good (not great) place for families and kids. The park itself could be kept a bit better, there is no real playground, besides 2 swings and 1 slide. Kids can ride a small train though (4 rides for 2 Euros if I remember well). It's on the very left from the entrance at the end of the bridge on the river. They rent small tricycles called grilli, kids love them (you pay 2 Euro for 15 minutes). There is a small lake as well. Plenty of parking between the park and the river.

  • Parc is big and with great old, high trees, here you could escape the heat and strong summer sun. But you have a big problem: there are not enough benches, where you could rest. The few existing ones are fully occupied by African refugees that have nothing to do the whole day, but sit and wait and listen to loud music on their phones.

  • It's a centrally located park in Parma, Italy. A beautiful lake in the centre having a track around for jogging. A Nice and calm location for morning walks. One can fully relax and spend quality time as benches have been provided at many places under tall trees. A very cool and relaxing atmosphere inside. It's a wonderful place to visit. It's my favourite in Parma.
