Urban Park in Forlì
One of the must-see attractions of the city of Forlì is definitely the Franco Agosto Urban Park.
Named after the first city mayor following the great war, the urban park of Forlì is not only the largest green area in the city but is also one of the most loved and frequented places by the people of Forlì.
Having over 20 hectares of surface, the Franco Agosto Park extends inside the urban fabric of the Romagna city. It flanks the old town center, close to the old city walls, and is limited by the Montone river and the green area surrounding the Morgagni-Pierantoni Hospital.
There are seven entrances, one is in via Fiume Montone and another in viale dell’Appennino.
A main feature of this immense green space is that at the time of its design, nothing was left to chance so that it could be a true paradise for adults and children. Everything was carefully studied: from plants to paths, with total absence of architectural barriers; also the lighting and irrigation system.
The result was extraordinary, a place where you can spend a whole day dedicated to nature, fun and good food.
The park is also enclosed by a surrounding path, ideal to ride a bicycle or simply have a quiet walk.
Inside you can also find five-a-side football, volleyball, basketball and bowls fields to indulge in your favorite sports. The little ones can play on Gommolandia, a village of slides and bouncy castles. The green train is an excellent opportunity to visit it with the whole family.
There is no shortage of curiosities, such as "Rabbit Hill", an area where bunnies live by the hundreds. In fact, it will not be difficult to see them free and undisturbed in the park.
There are also numerous resorts where you can have a snack: the Peter Pan pizza restaurant, housed in an old farmhouse; a restaurant bar on Rabbit Hill, on an old farmhouse and perfect for having a beer with friends or aperitifs; and the park would be uncomplete without a kiosk serving the Romagna piadina, which also has a space for children.
In short, the Franco Agosto Urban Park in Forlì is a truly unique place where you can enjoy nature and spend a day with the family, which cannot be discarded in the list of things to do in this Romagna city. Have a look at our Forlí air tickets offers and fly with Air Dolomiti!
