Parco del Valentino
Parco del Valentino is considered “the great shared courtyard” of Turin citizens. This park is a special spot for picnic, a walk, a nice boat trip and for other sport activities such as jogging or cycling. In the park you can also visit the Borgo Medievale, which was built according to the XV century buildings in Piemonte and in Valle d’Aosta.
Parco la Pellerina
Crossed by river Dora Riparia it is the largest park in Turin. It offers the widest dog park in the city and his artificial lakes are full of wild animals. The picnic area also includes picnic tables and barbecues.
Parco Pietro Colletta
The area around Parco Colletta, after a long period of abandon and degradation, was recovered with realisation of a river park. It takes its name from the Lungodora, one of the main River, the Dora river, in town, which delimits the area, named after Pietro Colletta. In the park you can find picnic areas and bicycle tracks running through the park alongside the river benches.
In 2006 it was restored and improved for the Winter Olympic games. The park surrounds the Stadio Olimpico (Olympic stadium) and the Palaolimpico (or Palaisozaki) and it is a special spot for jogging, walks and cycling thanks to 2000 meters track which surrounds the area. In Summer it offers exhibitions, fun and entertainment activities.
