Small Lakes and Water-skiing near the Metropolis

Molinello Recreational Area covers 242 hectares in the Municipalities of Moncalieri and La Loggia and is delimited in the east by the highway Turin-Savona, in the south by the ring-road of Turin, and in the west by river Po. The area has been subject to important and interesting environmental requalification measures aimed at keeping away the unauthorized buildings from the banks of rivers Po and Chisola, since they hinder the normal downflow of the waters in case of flood, and at requalifying the quarry lakes, the result of decades of mining activities, which are still ongoing. Molinello Recreational Area is subject to deep changes. When the works of renaturalization regarding the quarry lakes will be finished and the structures for visitors and sport, as well as bike trails and lakes for water-skiing (already existing) will be completed, Molinello, considering its proximity to the towns of Turin, Moncalieri, Nichelino, Trofarello, and La Loggia, will become one of the main recreational areas in the south of Turin.
