It covers an area of about 4,700 hectares, situated between the 244 and 1,146 meters of height. Established in 1977 to meet the need to safeguard and enhance the balance between nature and men (L.R. n. 36 of 18th August 1977), it is the third regional park after Ticino and Groane parks. The area within the perimeter of the Park presents very different environments, going from the hill to the mountains. It is a territory with rather heterogeneous physical and morphological features, enclosing both natural and architectural beauties of great value, like for instance Giongo Reserve or the historical town center of Città Alta.
