Park located in the heart of the city of Mestre, a few steps from the former hospital area and annexed to the Querini villa, now home to the offices of the Municipality of Venice. It was the first public garden in the city.

The entire complex, consisting of the villa and the park, can be considered a direct witness of when the Venetian nobles had the custom of owning rich houses on the mainland accompanied by flowering gardens, trees and orchards (typically areas enclosed by walls or hedges used as a vegetable garden and / or orchard), generally used for holidays or for conducting business.

It can be considered a city park of discrete dimensions, involved in 2008 by a pilot experiment of "garden therapy", a form of social aggregation that is widely used abroad and still in its infancy in Italy, whose heart of therapy is the treatment of plants and their growth. The park has also been renovated, enriching it with planters, a greenhouse with tools (now temporarily removed), a work table, two fountains, various benches.

The park also houses some statues and a well with the Querini coat of arms, now erased by time.
