    One of the major attractions of the park are the flowers whose colours harmonise and blend with the colours of the lake and the surrounding landscape. Every year the flowers and patterns of the flowerbeds are changed to tickle the curiosity of the local inhabitants who witness the changing of the seasons through the changing colours in the park.
    There’s still a lot of work to do which should be completed over the next ten years, to make sure that this park will continue to be one of the most admired in Switzerland

    Parco Civico, or „Parco Ciani“- as it is called by the inhabitants - is supposed to be one of the most beautiful parks in Switzerland.
    It is located on the lakeside only two minutes from Central Lugano.
    The name of the park goes back to the aristocratic Ciani brothers from Lugano, who bought the estate in 1845 and restored it by planting new, rare plants and trees and who also placed some sculptures of popular artists like Vincenzo Vela.
