Giardini margherita

Visited it in December and it was lovely. Suggest you take food with you since there are not shops near by and also a good camera :-)

We went to this park on a Sunday morning as they were having a flower market. It's as a perfect start to the day! The park itself is beautiful and worth a walk around. Bologna isn't necessarily a very busy city, but the park is a nice break from buildings and crowds. Lovely place to walk!

Blissful experience is an underestimation. I went there with my family and friends and enjoyed every minute of it. The stroll alongside nature was purely magical. I recommend Giardini Margerita to everyone.

A very nice park with a lake just on the outskirts of the old city. well laid out with very wide walking paths, much used by cyclists and the occasional car. Beware.

The park is a bit of a hike from the city centre, but in no way comparable to the London parks, despite its having an English landscape. Only worth visiting if you have time on your hands as I imagine its main attraction is for locals, particularly couples with children.

I've always heard about the garden. I'm quite surprised by the peace and silence. Pleasant bar with lake overview, turtles and trees. Love this place just in the middle of town. Recommended!

This park is situated just outside the city walls to the south of Bologna, a 25 minute walk from the main centre. The park is absolutely beautiful, with a lake and plenty of grass to sit and rest on. There is also plenty of shade for hot days and a cafe for a drink or bite to eat. It is... More

Nice big park. We got here by bike. There are some food stalls with a terrace. Great for children and adults. We cycled around and relaxed with our books in the grass while enjoying the sun. Free entry.

On our visit the park was full of families having a great time. There is a lot of space and not overcrowded. There are activities for children and the atmosphere was just very pleasant. It's a great break from the urban area.

at the outskirts of the city center, this park is a popular hangout place for young families with kids, dog walkers, and students - especially on weekend days. but also without kids and not being a student since ages, it makes a pleasant stroll under the trees, out in the green. a little city escape on the short run.
