Natural Park, an oasis of green

Natural Park, an oasis of green

The 32-hectare large pinewood area called Cervia Natural Park was opened in 1963 with the aim to safeguard a considerable part of this typical natural environment, making it particularly available and enjoyable to visitors.

Cervia Natural Park - Ph. Giulia Maioli

The Natural Park is the ideal place where you can spend hours of absolute tranquillity and re-discover forgotten fragrances and sounds, coming into touch with nature again. It is a real botanic garden with different routes.

The most common tree inside the park is the domestic pinetree (Pinus pinea) with its typical umbrella-shaped foliage, different from the other sort present here, the maritime pinetree (Pinus pinaster), which is rather pyramid-shaped. But there are also other sorts of trees, like oaks (Quercus pubescens and Quercus petraea).

The underbrush is rich with bushes like brambles (Rubus ulmifolius), hawthornes (Crataegus monogyna), wild olives (Hippophae ramnoides), privets, honeysuckles (Lonicera caprifolium) and Berberis vulgaris. The presence of small orchids "cheers up" the soil.

It is an environment suitable also for lots of animals, that have been introduced here by man: donkeys, fallow deers, horses, deers, goats, Romagna cows, ducks, swans, pheasants, peacocks, etc. A permanent aviculture exhibition shows the finest selected chicken and pheasan breeds.
