The Park invests considerable resources for the services addressed to
visitors, with the aim to inform and educate the several persons
visiting every day the protected area, or "meeting" the Park on other
Therefore, for the public the Park changes its look and becomes "the Park and the fair", "the Park on display", "the Park on tour", etc.
During the weekend and according to the calendar established by the Park, in "R. Levati" and "Casinetto" Park Centers, the
information service and the sales point of material on the Park and
gadgets are open.
Further information can be found along the paths by reading the showcases and the information panels of the Park.
Every year the Park is present in fairs dedicated to nursery gardens and tourism, like Fiera del Giglio in Colorno (PR); the fair of "Frutti Antichi" in Paderna (PC), dedicated to ancient fruits, and Parcoproduce (AN) in collaboration with the other protected areas of the Province.
In Casinetto exhibit hall, exhibits dedicated to drawing, craftsmanship, painting, and sculpture are organized. Since the autumn 2001, one of the exhibit halls has been dedicated to a collection of wood coming from all over the world and given to the Park by the Carrega family. Other spaces in "R. Levati" and "Casinetto" Park Centers will be dedicated to an exhibit on the roe deer, the symbol of the Park.
The Park can be visited every day, from dawn to the sunset.
There is a service of guided visits on foot or by carriage, by previous booking. The visitors can choose different typologies of guided visits, from the classical "frontal lesson" to visits based on games and animation. The guided visits by carriage are an ideal opportunity to grasp the suggestive aspects of the Park such as the historical atmosphere in the monumental gardens or the closer observation of the roe deers in the clearings. The guided visits are on payment. With the support of informative material (maps of the paths, books...) you can visit the Park on your own.
Theatrical performances, concerts, sports events and other activities are carried out considering the main aim of the Park, that is the preservation of the natural resources.
Seminars, workshops, and meetings are organized to discuss about conservation and nature, about parks and sustainable development, and to train operators, teachers, and all the citizens who want to collaborate with the Park.
The Park has been dealing with didactics and environmental education for twenty years, and suggests several activities and packages for every kind of school. Among them, didactic trips, thematic labs (green toy library, bird watching, sensory activities...); projections and meetings in the classroom (ecology of the woodland; plants and animals of the Park...); more complex projects. There is also a "green point" for teachers, where they can gather information and plan initiatives.Further information
