It the second largest green area of the city but due to its historical significance it is regarded by everyone as “The Park”.
It was born in 1860 as a ring-shape stadium from which it takes its name (“tondo” is Italian for “circular”). It was initially a horse race track and a velodrome; then it was used as a stadium, to finally become a park.
At the beginning of 1989 the park was redesigned: paved paths were built and park furniture and play sets for grown-ups and little ones were installed. A perimeter fence provides safety and serves an access control measure.
The park welcomes people of any age; there are always fun activities to engage in, from music shows to sport events.
The main association that has its offices in the buildings of the Park is the Centro Sociale Il Tondo.
Lugo historical quarter also has other parks and gardens.
