Lots of shade trees.

While this is not quite as manicured or formal as some parks such as ones we have seen in Great Britain, it is pretty well cared for. There are a lot of mature trees creating a... read more

The park is a good place for a walk away from the bustle of the city. However it seems people are not careful with their dog poo. We literally fell foul of it on the grass areas. So go by all means and enjoy, but keep a careful eye for cleanliness.

There are a lot of mature trees creating a lot of shade which I imagine would be wonderful on a hot sunny day. Lots of families were out walking in the park which... More

Not necessarily what you come to Bologna for, but if you need respite from sightseeing and eating, head out to Giardini Margherita. It is about a 10-15 walk from Piazza Maggiore, at the end of Via Castiglione. A great bonus is you will pass the award-winning la Sorbetteria Castiglione which serves the best ice cream in the world. The park... More

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!
