The area is a “park” for its wooden area with large trees, and is also a “garden” for its spaces adorned with flower beds, bushes and ornamental plants. This ecological oasis, located at the foot of the morainal hills, is considered one of the world's five most extraordinary gardens, with over thirty thousand plants sculpted by nature and by the skilled hands of man.
The park was acquired by the Sigurtà family in 1941, who exploited the waters of the river Mincio to change the arid hills into an area full of greenery, today visited every year by thousands of Italians and foreigners. The park covers a surface area of 600 sq. Meters, with walkways and paths alongside 18 lakes, an immense meadow, Romeo and Juliet’s lookout, a hermitage, an oasis of medicinal plants, a big oak tree and horizontal sundial, and the little ones can discover the animal world and life on the farm in the Educational Play Farm. Simply beautiful to walk through, the park also features a shuttle train service accompanying visitors through all 7 kilometers of the route, and bicycles and golf carts can also be rented. Fast food kiosks and playgrounds for picnics are also available.
