For the ultimate escape from the busy city, you must visit Boscoincitta (Woods in the City), which is located nearly 10km west of the city center. Created as part of Milan’s green initiative over 30 years ago, this park grants Milan’s residents agriculture, animals, and wide-open spaces right in their back yard. You could spend hours running the paths surrounding the city-manned vegetable gardens and lakes. Adjacent to Boscoincitta is Parco Trenno. Also known as Aldo ANIASA Park, it is famous for its vast meadows and its long boulevards. It’s a great spot for a flat run. The best part is that these parks are easily accessible from the city. The metro runs just North of the parks, offering many access options. There are many paths and trails in these parks. Put all together, it can be as much as 5 miles east-west or north- south.
