Parco delle Rimembranze is located in the district of Castello, more precisely, on the Island of Sant’Elena, a rather modern side of this historical sestiere of Venice. The park is named this way in the memory of the soldiers who died in World War Two. The local tradition, for that matter, maintains that each of the trees in this park was planted in the memory of a victim. The park remains one of the most attractive (and few, for that matter) green spaces in Venice. It is crossed by winding alleys lined with statues (the statues of Verdi and of Wagner stand out in sharp relief), and it has been laid out with roller-skating rinks and children playgrounds. The rest of the Venetian Lagoon can also be admired from the south side of the garden.

With its specific tranquility, Parco delle Rimembranze is ideal for picnics and peaceful pastimes, whereas the nearby Stadio Penza is advisable for more active pursuits.
