Fausto Noce Park

It is the garden of the town, chosen by residents and tourists alike.
Fausto Noce is sixteen hectares of green in the centre of the town and soon loved by those who live here and by who just passes through Olbia.
There are four entrances and there is a bus stop (servizio Aspo) in via Gabriele D'Annunzio for those who wish to use public transport. The park is controlled by a security service.
It opens from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the winter and until 10 p.m. in the summer. It has existed for the last seven years, and was accomplished thanks to a previous council administration which had the foresight to transform a run down area in to the beautiful gardens of Olbia. The companies Gemma Sud and Edifex transformed the area, and aimed to create a space which was liveable. Therefore, lots of species of Mediterranean flora were planted, benches, exercise paths, already existent sports structures were recuperated (tennis courts, football pitches, changing rooms, a small amphitheatre, and bowls club) and above all water.
Water in the four fountains which decorate the park, water also in the two small paths which delimit the borders.

Plants in the Park

The water and the abundant flora make Fausto Noce the favourite place for families who like to take a stroll or have picnics, whilst sportsmen prefer to follow the exercise paths or alternative internal routes. A company maintains the park on a daily basis, but for hygiene reasons dogs are not allowed.
There are often events and concerts authorised by the local administration in the amphitheatre.
Tourists love it, even though they may have almost discovered it too late. It is also possible to eat in one of the bars near the sports buildings.
The plants the decorate Fausto Noce are all of Mediterranean tradition: from the Oaks (querce) to the wild Olives (olivastri) from the Locust Gum Bean Tree (carrubo) to the Strawberry Trees (Corbezzolo) and some exotic grafts. The park is mutating continually, according to the actual local administrations plans; it will enlarge even more due to the incorporation of a forestry site which borders with the actual sixteen hectares. If Olbia previously lacked a garden, now we must say that everybody's dream has been fulfilled.(e.m.)
