parco giochi pian piret

This beautiful playground with breathtaking views might be a destination itself or a great stop on the Sonvico nature trail.

It has all kinds of swings, climbing structures, picnic tables, water fountain and barbecue.


bolle di magadino

Nice easy long walk around Ticino river entirely doable on a balance bike if your little one complains about walking too much.

You can enter this protected area from few places. We parked close to the parco giochi in Magadino and walk 5 minutes to the entrance.

These beautiful paths lead you through the park. There are some information boards on the way explaining few facts about the fauna and flora of this unique enviroment.

There are “watch towers” on the way too so you can observe natural inhabitants without interfering.

If you are a birdwatcher this is a must. On the other hand if you were a birdwatcher you would have known about Golle di Magadino already.

Anyway if you have a little bit of interest in the nature and would like to see the place where river Ticino flows into Lago Maggiore this is place for you.
