Grubrìa Park owes its name to the union of two pre-existing parks: the Grugnotorto Villoresi Park and The Brianza Central Park. The new park has more than 2000 hectares of green and leisure opportunities.
The Grugnotorto Villoresi Park
This park is a link between the Parco Nord Milano, the Groane Park and the Valle del Lambro Park. Though situated in a heavily urbanized area which fragments its continuity, it still preserves locations of natural interest. In the park area there is a juxtaposition of farmlands, farmsteads and virgin greens. Reforestation has been carried out by environmental associations and there is also a historic forest (Il Bosco Bello) within the perimeter.
The pond inside the park was obtained after the restoration of a sand and gravel quarry. It is divided into two sectors: one for fishing (carp, sturgeon, Russian grayling, catfish etc..), while the other houses common moorhen, ducks, geese and wild swans. Herons have also been spotted hanging around. A fenced park has been built near the lake with a bicycle lane and other recreational facilities.
What to do in the park
Many foot ways and cycle-ways are mapped inside the park. In addition, there is also fitness trail at the Oasi dei Gelsi in Paderno Dugnano.
Plenty of species inhabits also the park and they are able to satisfy the interest of the most enthusiastic birdwatchers.
Fishing areas lays at the North Lake Park (also known as North Cave Park) in Paderno Dugnano.
In the neighbourhoods of the park is possible to visit some places of architectural and cultural interest: Villa Bagatti Valsecchi and Villa Agnesi in Varedo, the garden city Milanino in Cusano Milanino, or the Lombardic little church of Sant'Eusebio in Cinisello Balsamo.
