For trekking lovers this is the place to be, not so far from Parma but far away from the heat of the summer.
Parco Fluviale Regionale del Taro, also called the bird park, covers 3.000 hectares following the Taro River for 20 km. This park is of great ornithological interest as it hosts more than 270 species of birds; of particular interest the migratory avifauna. Some birds such as the little tern, common tern, stone curlew, and little ringed plover nest on the exposed river bed, while others, such as the black-crowned night heron and the little egret, nest in the riparian woods. The sheltered meanders are populated by ducks.
There are many places of interest worth visiting in the park: the row of mulberry trees, the Chiesa di Madregolo, Villa Anguissola, Corte di Giarola, the Chiesa di Oppiano, and the Pieve of Fornovo.
