The Park Villaba is a wooded area of over 20 ha.

It is situated at an altitude between 600 and 700 meters and it was designed by the Mountain Communities to park facilities. The area, situated at the edge of the Monte Rufeno Nature Reserve, inside the vast state-owned forest of Selva di Meana, it's remarkable from an environmental point of view. The Park is included in the ample Inter Park. The woods, tall on the steam, are characterized mainly by the presence of oak species, other species sporadic or rare, but important as maple, ash, beech and chestnut trees. Among the shrubs there are the rare fraxinella. Just inside the park there are numerous wild orchids, of which more than thirty different species have been recorded. There is also a rich fauna with the presence of ungulates, predominantly that of the wild boar, but also fallow and roe deer; many are also the birds of prey.
