Maybe too early in the year just a quiet area to sit it is on the otherside of the river, locals use the steps for fitness.

Like most of my discoveries, this was accidental ;) I was following the city walls, fulfilling a desire to see the old walls and the different gates. I had walked to the end of the main walls, crossed over the river and to my right I spotted more wall. On closer inspection I found these gardens behind the wall. Wonderful... More

We were travelling with a 3, 4 and 5 year old so came here to let the run about and burn some energy. There is a nice playpark for kids under 10, benches for the grown ups and a park attendant with a key to an adequate toilet.

Pisa is not a particularly green city, everywhere you turn there are beautiful examples of architecture, however it was really lovely to walk through this park and get a break from it all. The park has a lovely play area for children and there are benches and wifi hotspots dotted around. A lot of locals were there just reading or... More

Pisa is pretty small, and while there is a lot crammed in, if you're there for more than a day you may find yourself looking for inspiration beyond the crowds in the centre (especially if the Orto Botanico and Museo Nazionale are both closed, as when we visited). A pleasant walk along the south bank of the Arno brings you... More

This is a wonderfully shady park near the Arno River. There is a fairly large play area for children as well as benches for people to rest in the quiet shade. You also have a good view of some of the historic fortifications around Pisa.

We were so glad we came upon this park on Trip Advisor. It deserves all the positive reviews. Providing a wonderfully cool, shady oasis from the late summer heat, the park was an absolute godsend for our family. There's a great play area and plenty of nice, shaded spots for picnics. The only problem may be getting your little one... More

On the south bank of the Arno, a little bit away from the centre of town. A pleasant park In a town that doesn't have much green space. The had set out chairs on the lawn for an event later in the day, but we didn't see any details so didn't hang around

You got children with you and they get bored? You want to escape some mid-day heat? You want to prove that Pisa is not all about Piazza dei Miracoli? Then take an evasive action from the usual crowds and come here for an hour or so. In other case - just take one star from the rating.
