Unnamed Road

Comunelli state-owned equipped area

Leaving from Butera, take the Provincial Road towards Gela, towards the Comunelli Dam. After about 6 Km. On the right you follow the indication "Vasche Rizzuto", and about 1 Km. You will meet a large sign with the words "Parco equipped Comunelli", the destination of our journey. The wooded complex had begun shortly before and the beauty of the place had already been foretold. The stand is made up of old-style eucalyptus and Mediterranean pines, interspersed with the former, and which, in the medium-long term, can replace the eucalyptus. The area extended about 2 hectares, consists of 20 characteristic wooden tables, many benches, about 20 fire points, three fountains, a local stone basin, several wooden waste bins, a parking area, swings and a play area for children on the very characteristic “fort” model and made entirely of local wood. The toilets were built by renovating an old building near the area. It is possible to make excursions on foot along the paths that wind through the state property. From the equipped area it is possible to see the Comunelli Dam, which gave the wooded complex its name.

Note on Sources

The information on the equipped state-owned areas has as its main source the Internet site of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (constantly updated) to which is added a very interesting brochure entitled "The State Equipped Areas in Sicily" of the same department published in 1999 with the Editorial Coordination of the 8th Group - Promotion, Development and Research, editors Agostino Gatto and Valeria Restuccia. Further information was obtained from direct access to the areas and from interviews with experts and operators in the sector.
