The territory of the Ticino valley in Robecco is one of the few places where nature still dominates on
the human activity.
Woods and brushes of English oaks, white and black poplars, hornbeams and cherry trees are mixed with cultivated lands and wet woods of alders and willows, rogge, canals and oxbows.
THE TICINO PARK In 1974 the Ticino Park was born for the protection and preservation of the environment of the Lombard territory present along the course of the river Ticino.
It is the first Regional Park which was established in Italy, in an area situated between the more urbanized and densely populated areas of our country, in order to safeguard the natural, historical and cultural needs of a river that characterizes a long stretch of territory in its course.
It extends from Lake Maggiore to the confluence with the river Po, on a total surface of about 92,000 hectares in 47 municipalities in the provinces of Varese, Milan and Pavia.
Thanks to its wealth of nature, landscape, art and history, the Ticino Valley , in 2002, has been recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve.
The Park offers a dense network of paths to discover the richness of the natural environments and can be crossed on foot or by bicycle.
For all the information on travels you could consult the official site.
THE PARK’S OBJECTIVES In the Ticino park you bring together two objectives: the first is the underlying theme for all parks in the world and it consists in the conservation and management of natural resources. The second concerns the management and development of natural resources, territorial and environmental, to coordinate with the social and economic development of the populations living in the Park itself.
This is why the Park of Ticino is anything but a control instrument; instead it represents an instrument of democratic participation in choices regarding the management of the territory.
The popular origin and the strong participation, also critical, are, together with the natural beauty of the river valley, the most valuable heritage to defend and safeguard.
