For those who have special needs

The Delta Park has a complex territory. The main tract is on waters: river, sea, valley or salted basins. Because of its peculiar geomorphology the Park is, probably more than other sites, accessible also to those who have special needs. What might seem a limit, is indeed what enables us to have different and further "perspectives" which make this a truly new way of "reading" nature.
Here below a list of all the accessible facilities and possible activities available at the different stations of the Po Delta Park:


Museo del Bosco e del Cervo - Castello di Mesola (Mesola Ferrara)

The Centre addresses all the visitors of the Park, with special attention to students of all schools and grades; it can be the departure point for the visit to all Park stations.
At the centre the facility has a multiple space of aggregation, and a didactic-naturalistic lab available to all classes to carry out practical activities.
