Park 19 maggio 2012 (Parco Cillarese)
The park has been launched on 1st June 2013 and it is one of the largest Apulian urban park, because of its 43 hectares. In 2014, after the tragic attack to the Morvillo-Falcone institute, where the student Melissa Bassi lost her life, the park has changed its name in “Parco 19 maggio 2012”.
It is an ideal place for a walk or bike ride surrounded by the sounds and of nature. The lakes, crossed by wooden bridges, host turtles, frogs and colorful dragonflies while the canal, the last part of the watercourse that flows into the inner harbor, has become a habitat for many species of waterfowl that spend the winter here or stop during their long migrations.
