The Olive Park is located in Castagnola, on the side of Monte Brè and covers 20,000 m2. This area has a good exposure to the sun and is sheltered from the winds of the north.
The mild climate helps the growth of the vegetation: olive, cypress, laurel, rosemary, oleander, roses and other shrubs growing on the slopes and terraces. From the park there's a beautiful view over the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Can be reached by "sentiero di Gandria" (Gandria path) or by "Sentiero dell'Olivo" (Olive path) (partially coincident).
The park is open to the public from March 1 to September 30 from 6:30 to 23:30 and from October 1 to February 28 from 7:00 to 21:00.
