A very beautiful park. Lots of greenery. There are set play areas for children which are nice too. Free water fountains are very handy. There are also a few areas that have workout stations which are well maintained.

The Le Cascine is a large park that runs along the River Arno in Florence. I enjoyed the jogging opportunities and running in the park.

I had a quick visit while staying in Florence. The park is large but rather narrow and runs alongside the River Arno. Not many tourists about in the area and its only a 10 minute walk from the busy city centre. Most users tend to be dog walkers, runners or walking commuters. It appears that there was once a race...

I've come to run here many times or simply to take a long walk. It's not a particularly well kept park, but you can get away from traffic and tourists. Mostly there are locals walking their dogs and the occasional jogger. There's a market there, and the day we went for a walk, four garbage trucks with an army of... More

Huge park with plenty of space for kids to roller skate or skate board or go cycling or just running around. Open gyms available for people that are interested, plenty of wooded area, fountains, etc to enjoy , walkway right by the river. Accessible by bus and tram.

After a few days seeing museums, galleries and duoro, no matter how great, comes the time for some R&R sunbathing and watching the beautiful people. So we headed for the open air public swimming baths in the parco which is along the banks of the river. It's 20 minutes walk from the main station or a short tram ride. If... More

We went to a small section of the park and it was great to have the kids play ball in. Not the easiest place to take a pushchair

Lovely park but we went after market stalls so there was quite a lot of litter. Nice place though and very big. Am hoping to go for a run around there very soon. There is lovely cafe hidden in the park with play area and natural foods.

Literally and figuratively quite trashy. The west side is better with something resembling a true forest. Ok for running or biking. Stick to the river. Closer to it than the "official" path, there's a sandy and less even path with more of a river view.

We borrowed a couple of bikes and had a lovely cycle around the park. Large clothes market in the morning. Didn't go but looked interesting and cheap! Shaded by the trees which makes it pleasant on a hot day.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
