Parco Fluviale del Taro
The symbol of diversity
The Park protects the river stretch between Fornovo and Pontetaro (PR), and it extends over about 2,000 ha
(more than 3,000 if considering the adjacent area).
The managing Authority has been working for years to safeguard
this important natural corridor, where highly natural places, agricultural areas and other zones, that have been deeply changed by man, live together.
It is a very important protected area, since it is a migration route and nesting place
for many bird species, and it represents an ideal place for green tourism
. A few kilometers far from Parma's town center, it is the perfect environment for easy excursions, itineraries for cycle tourism and mountain bike
, for birdwatching
and for the proximity to other places of historical and landscape interest: the Ettore Guatelli Museum
and the Parco Boschi di Carrega
Since 2012 it has been managed by the Managing Authority for the Parks and Biodiversity of Western Emilia
