Public Gardens of Ravenna

Viale Santi Baldini, 4 - Ravenna

THE PUBLIC GARDENS OF RAVENNA are a large green urban area (37,500 sqm) adjacent to the historical centre of the city.

Previously home to a hippodrome, a velodrome and even a football pitch, the area was transformed into the city’s Public Gardens in the early 1930s, designed by architect Giulio Ulisse Arata from Piacenza.

The gardens, located just behind the Basilica of Santa Maria in Porto and the MAR – Ravenna Art Museum, have a splendid iron gate with a fountain in the centre designed by the architect Arata himself.

Due to its size and the presence of tall trees, the park is an oasis in the town centre suitable for family relaxation, walks and sports. The park hosts many public events, with music, markets, dog shows and performances.

The Public Gardens are also home to the Planetarium, a café/restaurant, a children’s play area and an equipped fitness trail.
