The 2.5-hectare park houses plants from nearly all of the subtropical regions of Asia, South Africa, America, Australia and the islands of Oceania. The smaller Brissago island, Isola di Sant'Apollinare, is covered by vegetation that grows of its own accord, and that is kept in its natural state.
In the Botanical Park, there is a 0.5 -kilometer long nature trail dedicated to the world of plants, where visitors can obtain information on various plants and their origin. They can also visit a special collection of medicinal herbs and crops. Interested visitors will receive the flyer “Ferns on the Brissago Isles”.
