The park is located on the first hill slopes south of the city, just outside Porta San Mamolo. It has a surface of approx. 28 hectares.
Open in 1975 the park is a perfect example ot the typical hill landscape. Since 2004 Fondazione Villa Ghigi has been running the park proposing special educational guided tours about season cicles and vegetation.
Park entrances are in via San Mamolo, Via Martucci and Via Gaibola where there is a large parking area.
