The Baix Llobregat Agrarian Park, which covers more than 3,400 ha (including more than 2,000 hectares of agricultural land), is located south of Barcelona, ??in the metropolitan area itself. The park is a true economic zone specialized in agricultural activity but also with social and environmental assets. This park was born in 1998 from the desire to preserve the agricultural and environmental values ??of the territory. It aims to solve as best as possible the problems linked to the pressures of urban and industrial expansion exerted on the agrarian space by the metropolis.
