Boston

This park is huge, reminiscent of the Common in Boston. It's next to the Theatre and the University. In the summer you can find families, hippies, and people practicing martial arts. The chess courts are constantly mobbed by arguing old men who are very serious about their game. It's quite entertaining if you have some time to kill. There's also an elaborate monument to the reformers of Protestantism, including the text of significant documents. I was happy to find my native Rhode Island's Roger Williams on the Wall!

First to Review

The main gates into the park are located at Place Nueve, but here are smaller enterance ways around the outer edges. Here is where people gather to play larger than life chess and checkers. There is a walkway down the center with coverage from many beautiful trees. There is a cafe in the park as well. Great place to sprawl out and take a nap under the sun or stars!

Cagliari

Poco distante da Plaze de Neuve, è un polmone verde nel cuore di Ginevra, luogo ideale per passeggiare o trascorrere del tempo in famiglia. Al suo interno c'è un giardino botanico e anche vari palazzi storici.
