Sigurtà Garden Park
At Valeggio sul Mincio, just a few kilometres from Verona, an oasis of greenery that appears to belong to a fable: the Sigurtà Garden Park.
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.
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 kilometres of the route, and bicycles and golf carts can also be rented.
Fast food kiosks and playgrounds for picnics are also available.
From mid-March to end of October: every day from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, closed from 7:00 pm onwards
During the months of March and October entry until 5:00 pm and closing at 6:00 pm.
