The Sources of Lura Stream Park is a Local Park of supra-municipal interest comprising eight municipalities in the Province of Como: Albiolo, Faloppio, Lurate Caccivio, Montano Lucino, Olgiate Comasco, Oltrona di San Mamette, Uggiate Trevano, and Villa Guardia. The aim of the Park is to protect and enhance its natural territory, which is the catchment basin of several watercourses in the northern Milan area. The most important is the Lura stream, which is a tributary of the Olona river. The torrential courses, as well as the wetlands and agro-forestry cover, contribute to the formation of ecosystems suitable for many animal and plant species, constituting an irreplaceable resource for the conservation of biodiversity.
The Park, which was recognised as "supra-municipal" by the Province of Como in 2007, occupies an area of 1,628 hectares, creating an ecological connection on two axes: the east-west axis between the Spina Verde Regional Park and the Appiano Gentile and Tradate Pinewood Regional Park, as well as with the Valle del Lanza PLIS (Protected Area of Supra-Municipal Interest), and the north-south axis between the border ridge of hills and the Lura Park PLIS, with which it creates territorial continuity in protecting the course of the Lura stream and its valley.
The park promotes dissemination, educational and recreational activities, as well as conservation and enhancement of the area, also thanks to the work of many associations and voluntary groups.
