Time Out says
In a city with sparse green space, this corner park offers a verdant little respite, especially good for kids needing some open space to run around.
At the intersection of the Grand Canal and Rio Novo, this humble little garden might not boast much in terms of square footage but for Venice, it’s still a lot of green space. That it remains relatively uncrowded is another bonus. There’s playground equipment for the kids, plus benches, and plenty of shade trees. If you need a break from the constant crowds around Santa Lucia train station, this is the place to take it.
Time Out tip: If you have some time to kill waiting for a train at Santa Lucia station, you’re much better off spending it here in this shady enclave than in the sea of humanity at the station.
The Grand Canal: For appreciating the volume, speed and efficiency of Venice’s water traffic
Basilica dei Frari: For Gothic architecture and Titian’s tomb
Bacareto da Lele: For an overstuffed panino and a glass of wine to wash it down with
