Parco Faunistico La Torbiera, Agrate Conturbia

3.8
#4 of 7 in Parks in Province of Novara
Faunist Park La Torbiera is a Biopark and consists of an area open to the public and a protected area for wildlife preservation. It was established in Agrate Conturbia, Piedmont, Italy in 1977 to preserve and study some animal species in danger of extinction.EnvironmentFaunistic Park La Torbiera is located in a border area between the Po Valley and the Prealps, characterized by a mild but damp climate, and plenty of small lakes. This is therefore a very favorable environment for the development of mires, which are born progressively by the accumulation of dead parts of vegetable on bottom of lakes. In wet soil, the oxygen deficiency prevents the oxidation processes and the complete decomposition of plants.The vegetable remains are transformed therefore only partially, becoming peat, and they collect on the bottom, making progressively decrease the depth of the basin. In this way, the plants of the shore which can be pushed towards the inside, reducing, until its demise, the surface of the water. The park, covering an area of 40 acres, provides shelter for many animal species. There are about 400 specimens relative to 130 wildlife species, mostly from the Palaearctic region.

    With patience and care. The animals are revealed! Accessible location and pleasant even in summer. The bar is tiny but provided the essentials for a meal in nature. Children and parents happy, despite the otters furbette!

    This park I really like because it allows you to take a walk outdoors in a peaceful environment and at the same time to see some exotic animal. The important thing is you understand a concept: the animals are visible if they want to be seen. The areas assigned to them are rich in vegetation so if your pet decides to hide there is no way to see it. I don't recommend the visit in summer during the hottest hours because the animals are hidden in the shadows and are not visible. Better take advantage of the cooler periods like spring or autumn.

    I've been to the Bog as kepper for one day ... what a wonderful experience! By animal lover I can say that having a guided tour only for me with ability to feed otters, red pandas, wild cat was super exciting! The Park is an oasis from the point of view of wildlife both flora. Presence of a small dining area and boutique

  • It wasn't the first time I went to this Faunistic Park, but I've always been too little. Today I visited again with my parents and had a great time! The animals didn't seem very stressed aside from the tiger, the Amur leopard and the ocelot.. My personal favorite animal is the snow leopard because it's really playful and keeps you entertained when it's not sleeping :D Overall I totally recommend this place for a nice day in the company of these peculiar species!
  • Cute. It certainly could be improved, but there is certainly a place that may please. Surrounded by greenery and with a natural peat bog where there are dozens of species of migratory birds. Animals as obvious that both are in places that are too small and noisy, but what zoo has huge spaces and quiet? All in all a couple of hours (being large) interesting to spend with the family. There is also a park picnic area with bar and kiosk. The toilets are really sporchine.

  • Cool, quiet, animals being kept well. And interesting natural environment. There is no mass tourism. Very nice with children even with strollers. Would be perfect with bathrooms equipped for children.

  • Almost a natural oasis, animals that can be seen free, through Windows or along the path, set in a natural environment well cared for. Possibility to picnic or restaurant bar with reasonable prices.

  • Park is not particularly large (turns quietly in a couple of hours), but there is a great variety of interesting animal species. In particular are very beautiful areas for wolves and ungulates.
