The place needs a make over, I am sure they love the animals, but it is run down, the walk up the hill is not for the faint hearted, especially on a hot day

We visited on a Saturday, and the park was busy with lots of families and children. The gardens are lovely, with views over the lake and a nice little café for snacks and drinks. So far, so good. Then we went to the zoo and...More

Had a lovely stroll round the gardens. If they'd been with us our grandchildren would have had a great time with the animals. If you're also planning to visit the islands in Lake Maggiore you can buy a ticket that includes the islands as well...More

We took our nephew (2 years old) to the park to see the animals. He was so excited to be able to walk amongst the goats, sheep and deers. We all loved the gentle walk around the amazing park which was sheltered in many places...More

I have never visited an attraction of this standard so poorly marketed. Situated a long walk out of Stresa, it is unlikely that anyone would find it by accident. The extensive woodland is full of waterfalls. The zoo animals are clearly well looked after and...More

This was a pretty place to walk around. The animals were a little different than the ones you would find in zoos in America but we enjoyed it nonetheless. The gardens and flowers were gorgeous and the peacock put on quite the show for us.

It is easy top walk around, but it is on a hill. You better take the little train from Stresa main square so to arrive at the top and then walk down. Come and see us!
