The Caribbean just a few steps from the lake
A few kilometres from the lake, surrounded by hills and vineyards, there is a small oasis of relaxation and fun: the Cavour water park.
Palm trees, crystal clear water and fine white sand …
Many will seem to have taken the wrong road and ended up in the Caribbean but no, it’s all true.
Nothing like hours of air travel, but just about ten minutes by car from Peschiera del Garda to reach this paradise. If, on the other hand, you are coming from further away, the park can be easily reached from both the A4 motorway and the A22 Modena-Brenner motorway.
The only difficult thing? It will only be deciding what to do at the Cavour water park: sun or bath?
On these summer days the Cavour Park is undoubtedly one of the places to visit on Lake Garda when the heat begins!
45 Years of Parco Cavour: The history
Before finding out what to do at the Cavour water park, you should know that this year the park celebrates 45 years of opening!
Let us therefore briefly retrace these years to discover the history of the Park.
The story of a family and a place that was initially created to be simply a summer home for holidays. Starting from a dream, it has become a bigger project, a place for everyone’s well-being and recreation.
The current Parco Cavour is the result of the ideas and work of Mr. Bighelli and his family. That he wanted to create a Caribbean environment in these lands.
They started from a bare plot of land in the hills of Valeggio and started planting trees and flowers. A first swimming pool and then their home transformed into a restaurant bar, up to what you can see today: a small paradise of water in nature.
Commitment and passion are what has been guiding the family for all these years.
Leading them to create what is now one of the most loved water parks and one of the places to visit near Lake Garda.
From the very beginning, the park has always been represented by the mascot Camillo. A cute hippo to symbolize relaxation and tranquility.
