Giardino Inglese - The English Garden
The English Garden surrounds a public historical villa in the centre of Palermo, It is a quiet and peaceful place where the people of Palermo love to spend their free time on a leisurely walk or just sitting in the shade and relax. The park is very clean and well cared for and boasts a romantic atmosphere.
Designed in 1851 by Giovan Battista Filippo Basile, the Giardino Inglese also features an artificial lake with a statue of Rutelli, a botanical garden of considerable interest, statues, busts and monuments in memory of famous people - such as the one dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi - and many fountains, ponds and formidable exotic trees. Little visitors will have fun at the playground with rides.
