The Birth of the Park

The Park was established after long and hard struggles carried out by citizens, associations, and local authorities.
Everything began in the 1970s when the debate on the project to enlarge the oil refinery in Fornovo Taro opened.
Taro Park, like almost all protected areas, was born among strong local oppositions, since it lies in one of the most densely populated and high-production economic area.

The Environments

Taro Park covers 20 km from Ponte Taro to Fornovo, along the stretch of the upper plain of the river.
The large riverbed wanders and the water covers the surrounding mattress of gravel. The banks of the watercourse are usually higher than the bed and are characterized by a mosaic vegetation.
