  • Giardini della Guastella

    Recommended by Sara Bishop

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Giardini della Guastella Is the oldest park in Milan and has many ponds and statues as well as beautiful plants. There are lots of walking paths which the children love running up and down! We often go here as it’s a smaller park and feels less busy/touristy.

  • Giardini Pubblici

    Recommended by Sara Bishop

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Conveniently located if you are shopping on the Corso Beunos Aires or near the Centrale station, this park is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle and let your kids run around letting off steam! The park has nearly 200m2 of green space. It is next to the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale and the Planetarium if you wanted a combined trip.

  • Parco Sempione

    The grounds of Parco Sempione are vast and there are several museums on the grounds. Inside the park itself there is a big playarea with rope climbing nets, swings, slides, climbing frames etc. There are also merry go rounds, roller skating area and electric go karts.

    Comments
    "Inside the park there is a bar where you can enjoy a drink in the outside seating area whilst the kids run around the park."

  • Giardini Di Villa Reale

    Recommended by Sara Bishop

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Located behind a beautiful villa once inhabited by Napoleon and now home to Gallery of Modern Art this park has lovely lawns and a great play area for kids with swings, slides, seesaws etc. The children can run free as its well fenced and quite small and there is a pond in the middle with an bridge and ducks and swans - my children love feeding the ducks in the pond. Giardini di Villa Reale is a small oasis for children in the middle of a busy city.
