Amusement parks in Bologna for the whole family
Posted on 22 July 2021 From Bologna Welcome
Bologna is really a city for everyone, including families with children. Let's find out where to spend a whole day or a few hours of fun in Bologna and its surroundings.
And remember, the watchword is... good cheer!
The city has reopened the all-you-can-enjoy FICO park with its animal farm and food-themed activities, able to delight the whole family. Learn how to gain the animals' confidence and get to know how to classify the existing plant species and how to produce the delicacies you love so much while having fun playing with the multimedia installations!

And inside, don't miss the bizarre Luna Farm. Here the rides revolve, jump and spin, just like your eyes, and you can paint on the walls without being shouted at! A favourite place for children and their parents.
Up in the hills comes the Capriolandia adventure park. Children of all ages love climbing the wooden castle, discovering the vegetation on the trails and learning to recognise the seasonal changes in nature. The zip line is the main attraction through young visitors can experience bird flying. Open by reservation only.
And if it's too hot for you, try taking refuge in cool places like the Villaggio della Salute Più water park in Monterenzio. Here, children will enjoy jumping off the slides and having a splashing contest, surrounded by an incredible view of the rolling green hills that can even cheer up the stress of parents. Pleasure is for the whole family!

From 24 July to 19 September, don't miss Lagolandia, the weekend appointment with the lakes of the Bolognese Apennines, where you can learn how to be at ease with the nature that surrounds us. The proposed cultural trails, suitable for everyone, adults and children, experts and beginners, are thematic excursions led by exceptional guides for the (re)discovery of our mountain landscapes!
In San Lazzaro di Savena, a few kilometres from the city centre, the Parco della Resistenza hosts the exhibition "Dinosaurs in Flesh and Bone-The Park". Take a dip into prehistoric times when these huge animals used to rule the Earth and discover how they marked the history of human evolution. Open by reservation only.

And for the little ones, the 0246 playground in San Lazzaro is the ideal place. Here, children and their carers can enjoy themselves in complete serenity in a well-equipped green area that takes care of everyone's safety. Open from morning to night, the park's games, routes and activities are designed with full respect for children and their developmental stage.
