What to do in the park
In the Falck areas, in the district of San Maurizio al Lambro, it is possible to follow a path to revive the past of this area told by illustrated signs or another path which stimulates ous five senses, to visit a biodiversity wood, to go up the tower in the orientation zone and go down through a big slide, to lose oneself in the labyrinth, to prove oneself on the skaboard-halfpipe track or on the climbing wall. Whereas children can take part to labs or enjoy the playgrounds.
In Sesto San Giovanni, the area facing via Pisa is supplied with walking paths.
In Cologno Monzese, the horse riding centre Erbastro offers horse rides in the park.
