This is a short walk from the Della Posta restaurant and hotel. Its a location for visitors to check out. They have flora and artifacts from different parts of the world - particularly China, India and Egypt.

You can get here by boat from Lugano. This is a lovely little park garden with a number of themes. Beautifully laid out with great views over the lake. Well worth a visit while you are in Lugano.
