The park is in the center of the city and it was adapted for use as a park in the 17th Century. People say that in the Napoleonic period, public events like the greasy pole and air ballooning took place here. In 1806, an architect called Gian Battistia Martinetti began to re-organize the park and created the beautiful gardens which are there today. The pool which is at the center of the park was put there by Diego Sarti in 1888. Interestingly, the park is built on some of the castle's remains at the end razed Castello di Galliera. You can see of Via Indipendenza, at the foot of the impressive staircase which leads up to the gardens.
