The Park of the Marmore Falls is divided in different trails and traverses them is a very interestig and suggestive experience for that families who have children with problems of a "deficit of nature". But what does it means? The original term “ Nature Deficit Disorder, has been done in 2005 from Richard Louv, an American journalist passionated of childhood. Louv, in his book “Last Child in the Woods”, explains how people, in particular way children, are spending always less the time outdoor, in contact with nature, and all this cause many consequences on their behaviour. In the last 20-30 years the quantity of time that children spend outdoor, playing with their friends or explorating what they can find around, had a significant decline, simultaneously to a costant increase of children with healthy and weight problems, to a reduction of the use of our senses as the smell, the attention, and the increase of risks about the mental and physic disorders.
Maybe it's time to discover the beauties of nature, leaving children free to explore the world, making them experiences that we have already done.
Walking in the wood, along the trails n.1 and 4, or walking barefoot and lay down on the fresh grass, to the Upper Outloo, along the trails n.5; to feel the emotion to embrace trees inside the area, are experiences that we can do, in safety, in the park of the Marmore Waterfall.
Don't forget the animals and the pleasure to observe them, to feed the birds, to see the frog in the lake. Children can see the rainbow int eh viewpoint of the Upper Outlook called "La Specola" or see the three drops from the Byron Square in the Lower Outlook.
This expereince to the Marmore Falls can be considered the first step that can help children but also adults, to rediscover the nature.
