Aveto Park has recently opened a Botanic Garden which has been named after Federico Delpino, a famous botanist from Chiavari. The garden is situated in loc. Passo del Bocco and houses a reconstruction of the different forest coverings characterizing our territory. A visit to the garden will lead you not only to the discovery of the botanic features of the characteristic habitats of the Ligurian Apennines, but also to the discovery of some phytogeographical and ecological features of the Park, highlighting the relationships between vegetal species and communities and various environmental factors. This naturalistic experience represents for the Park visitors or guests of the nearby "Antonio Devoto" Mountain Hut a pleasant opportunity to carry out a pleasant walk surrounded by nature. The trail, created paying particular attention to visitors with disabilities, is equipped with bookstands, picnic area, and a place that can be used as an outdoor "classroom". The bookstands, placed near each habitat, schematically describe in detail the natural environments you can find in the Park, highlighting the presence of characteristic flora and fauna. Along the trail or in the vegetation beds next to the plants, there are also taxonomic labels in order to easily identify the main vegetable species.
You can book guided visits to the Botanic Garden calling the Park Environmental Education Center: 0185/343370.
