This is another wonderful place located on the lake maggiore very close to stresa. Another piece of paradise,we walk a lot to be honest because the park is very big but is absolutly fantastic. Don't forget to visit if you come around this area

Lovely parkland setting with Lake views, combined with an assortment of cuddly animals, all of which are accessible for the children to stroke. An excellent cafe located in the centre of the park offers reasonable priced snacks. The gardens are surprisingly beautiful and well cared...More

Like all things in life its different folks different strokes. We both found this attraction well worth the the entrance fee of 9.50 euros. This zoo combined garden is not really a zoo in the accepted sense, it is a collection of goats donkeys deer...More

We visited on a Sunday morning and had the grounds almost to ourselves. 2 hours later, and the park was filling up with Italian families with young children, a few in strollers. The main attraction for them is the 'zoo'. Not to be overstated, but...More

I visited this park one afternoon in late July, with my sister (a long time resident of Stresa) and my 5 year old daughter. The park is located a leisurely 20 minute walk away from the centre of Stresa, along the lake front. Having got...More

Visited the Park in the afternoon towards closing time. Initial entry area raised hopes, but they soon diminished as we worked our way through. The toilets tell you a lot about any venue, these were a disgrace, not checked with appliances not working. The whole...More

The park just south of Stresa has a small parking lot, but we walked from our hotel in less than 15 minutes (from near the ferry station). The grounds are very well kept. The animal collection is modest, including mostly small-to-medium sized animals (no elephants...More

Easy to walk with designated paths and background music by (I think) Puccini.Then we took an easy and scenic walk back to Pallanza to pick up the ferry

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!
