The park was left to Morcote municipality in 1965 by Scherrer family with the request to make it a public park. It was created by Hermann Arthur Scherrer. (1881-1956) You can visit a series of beautiful gardens with artwork and sculptures and of course vistas of the lake.

The gardens are different levels creating an exciting walk with surprises.  You will find replicas of Erechtheus, the second temple in the Athens Acropolis. Also, an Indian which resembles Palazzo Salò at Bruigne near Padova, an Egyptian Temple dedicated to Nefertiti and at the entrance a Ticino-Lombard house. The botanical garden displays a variety of plants, trees, and flowers, such as Camelias and Wisteria, Eucalyptus trees, and more.

About Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
