I really like those tall trees in the first shot.

The first photo reminds me of pini di Roma. I've seen only in Italy this species of pine.

Green spaces in the city are so valuable for the well-being of people.

It's essentially a park, isn't it? Those large green spaces are wonderful to have for the use of both young and old. From what I see in that second shot, the brick work is still in good shape.

Looks like people of all ages are enjoying it now that it's open again. That's great!

I like parks and places to relax.
I also like the sound of the name GARIBALDI :)

Happy scenes of people enjoying the new old place. Grass! and benches! in the middle of the city.
