Sport in the Park

Learning While Having Fun...

The Park offers particular opportunities to play and learn within nature. The different river and perifluvial ecosystems housing animal and plant species of particular conservation interest represent a significant value for the environmental education, and the didactics and the many and easy pedestrian and cycle itineraries along the water courses or near the Gesso and Stura confluence allow children and young people to visit the Park, making them aware of the natural environment around them, and of the richness and frailty of the local natural and cultural heritage.

In the same way, the many didactic structures, the equipped itineraries and the natural areas functioning as real outdoor ecology classrooms, allow pupils to know and learn while having fun, while the already existing sport facilities, both the public and the private ones, enable people to practice sport in the open and safely.

Furthermore, since 23rd March 2013 the River House has been opened for visitors and school groups (; - the transboundary Environemntal Education Center, realized within the project "Education" of the Transboundary Integrated Plan "Marittime-Mercantour Transboundary space" and financed by the Transboundary Interregional Cooperation Program Alcotra 2007-2013 - which with its classrooms, laboratories, green spaces and the didactic apiary is ready to host, even in the winter months, a series of new didactic, playful and recreational activities.
