The Maremma Regional Park (Parco Regionale della Maremma), also known as Uccellina Park (Parco dell'Uccellina) covers a coastal area between Principina a Mare and Talamone near Grosseto, Magliano in Toscana and Orbetello, right up to the Livorno-Roma train line. The park covers 9,000 hectares (22,000 acres) plus an extra 8,500 hectares (21,000 acres) of open land around its boundaries.

The Park is characterized by important geographical elements such as the last stretch of the river Ombrone, the orographic system of the mountains of the Uccellina which reaches 417 metres (1,368 ft) of height in Poggio Lecci, the marsh area of the Trappola, and the coast which is both sandy and characterized by steep cliffs.
