Parco Ducale, open to the public, contains 3.2 km (2 mi) of tree-lined avenues. Ottavio Farnese gave the mandate in 1561 to architect Giovanni Boscoli to begin construction on a family residence. Subsequent rulers expanded the green space and gave the people of the city access. Joggers often exercise here. Bring picnic food and a blanket to relax in the shade. Services such as toilets or restaurants may not be available. Add Parco Ducale and other attractions to your Parma trip itinerary using our Parma trip planner.
