Location in the city

Parco Colonnetti is bordered south by the Sangone river, an affluent of the Po river. The park is an expansion of the green area along the river, crossing the Mirafiori district in Turin. This neighbourhood was populated by Fiat employees working in the Mirafiori plant. This huge park lies in a large peripheral area with 10-hectares factories and neighbourhoods.

This Google Earth photo shows the orthogonal structure of the city, continuing in the park in the placement of the trees. South of the Sangone river, in Nichelino, the urbanisation is more disorganised.
