Paradiso Fish Park

Where
Parco Ittico Paradiso
Via del Dosso, Villa Pompeiana (LO)

The opening stop of our tour is the Paradiso Fish Park, a densely forested river area of 130,000 square metres that was once part of the Adda river, later converted into a site for intensive fish farming following the digging of three canals and numerous ponds.

 

Over time, it gained several species of river plants (bur-reed, common reed, common and dwarf bulrush and network covering rushes), a sizeable wildlife population (moorhens, coots, grey herons) and a small variety of birdlife (including kingfishers and ospreys), the fish farm became a naturalistic facility open to the public.

Today, the Paradiso Fish Park is a natural oasis where visitors can enjoy a beautiful day out in the open air: in addition to 6000 plants, 20 species of fish (including eel, tench, pike, chubs and river trout) can be admired in the 3 km stretch of canals and windowed underwater observatories.

The characteristic features of each species are displayed on explanatory signs placed along the route. Adding to the charm of the place are a small farm with cows, goats and rabbits and a fun playground with Tibetan bridges, slides and climbing ropes.
