The new playground overlooking the Colosseum

Colle Oppio - Skatepark
from 11 February 2021 to 30 April 2021

A public place for sports and entertainment, a green area in the very center of the city with a postcard view. Following a long renovation and enhancement project, modified and resumed with the favorable opinion of the Archeological Superintendency after the discovery of archaeological remains pertaining to the Bath of Titus, the new and awaited playground in the park on the Oppian Hill has recently been inaugurated.

With the Colosseum in the background and surrounded by the remains of the Baths of Trajan, the disused sports fields in the area of ​​the “Polveriera” or powder store, so called because ammunition was stored there in the 17 th century, have been converted and transformed into two new soccer fields and a basketball court. A brand new skatepark completes the sports offer after the last maintenance interventions to restore safety: small but safe, and with a unique position, it includes a street part and a mini-pool.
Entrance to the playground is completely free and the fields are available to everyone.
