Sempione Park (Parco Sempione) is Milan's 116 acre urban park located between Piazza Sempione and the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco). Visitors to Sempione Park can enjoy formal gardens, monuments, fountains and a great view of the Arco della Pace.

Parco Sempione ("Simplon Park") is a large city park in Milan, Italy. Established in 1888, it has an overall area of 386,000 m², and it is located in the historic centre of the city, inside the Zone 1 administrative division. It owes its name to Corso Sempione, a major thoroughfare of Milan, dating back to the Napoleonic Empire. The park is adjacent to the gardens of the Sforza Castle and to the Arch of Peace, two of the prominent landmarks of Milan. The very design of the park, due to architect Emilio Alemagna, was conceived with the intent of creating panoramic views encompassing both monuments. A third prominent monument of Parco Sempione is the Palazzo dell'Arte ("Palace of Art"), built in 1933 and designed by Giovanni Muzio, which currently houses the Triennale di Milano art expo.
Other places of interest within the park include the Arena Civica, the public aquarium, and the Torre Branca tower.
The whole area of the park is covered by a free wireless network.

It is a romantic park, all fenced, which contains a rich collection of trees and shrubs, many recreation and entertainment whether winter or summertime.
Along its banks are important historic buildings and institutions in Milan, as the Castelo Sforzesco and its museums, l’Arena Gianni Brera, l’Arco della Pace e la Triennale di Milano e l'Acquario Civico.

Milan is not so green; on the other side it is quite famous to be a "gray" city, both for fog and concrete. Sempione park is one of the few green spots, surely the biggest in town. It is quite a nice park, particularly crowded during spring and summer. Very close to it there are many interesting clubs.

Sempione is really a breath of fresh air amongst the hubbub of Milan social spaces. A drum circle gathers on Sundays to play, drawing a big crowd. Otherwise, just relax with a gelato from a cart and admire all the romantic couples.

Just behind the Sforza Castle, this is a great park to chill, specially in the summer. There is always people exercising, it's a good place to jog, many people plays football as well. The park is beautiful and large. A good green place to get away from the gray Milan.
