Ducale Palace and Park

One of Many Parks in Parma, Italy

We walked around Ducale Park today. There were plenty of old trees that provided shady paths to wander and stroll under. The weather was mild considering it is August.

The elaborate green architecture of the old trees in this park was designed in 1560 and extended in the 18th century. It is decorated with sculptures by JB Boudard.

It was a peaceful day with parents pushing strollers; pedestrians, and bicycles. This park is about a 10-minute walk from our apartment and will be visiting it again and again. They hold many events in the park. This is a neighborhood place to gather, and it’s beautiful.



The architecture of some of the buildings is a piece of art all in itself. This one above always caught my eye every time we entered or left the park. We loved riding our bicycles here and just sitting and watch the turtles stretch their necks up high in the water.
