The Indro Montanelli gardens of Porta Venezia represent a municipal oasis, with gravel paths, small waterfalls, lakes and bridges, rock faces, limes, magnolias, willows, beeches and other trees.

The park is open to all, and it is popular with a wide variety of people, such as joggers and cyclists, and people taking lunch or an aperitif in a natural setting. For children, there are three play areas, and the ducks on the lake.

The Porta Venezia gardens are the first public park to have been created in Milan. They were laid out between 1782 and 1786, to a design by architect Giuseppe Piermarini. In 2002, the area was named after the famous journalist Indro Montanelli, who died in 2001. He is depicted in a statue near the Piazza Cavour entrance.

For children, as well as the three play areas, there is a train ride around the park. Near the Bar Bianco there is a roundabout.

    The trees in the Park include some monumental specimens, such as the Chinese redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) and a row of horse chestnuts (Aesculus hippocastanum). There is a bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) on the banks of the lake. One of the plane trees (Platanus) in the park is at least a hundred years old.
    The Bar Bianco is a favourite location for a coffee amidst the verdant scenery.
