LANDSCAPE STUDY OF AGRICULTURAL PARK
Baix Llobregat Agricultural Park is only twenty kilometres away from Barcelona. It occupies the bottom of the Llobregat River until the Mediterranean Sea. It occupies 7.413 acres of agricultural land, mediterranean pineland, little rivers and water channels.
Its main difference among most of the agricultural parks in the world is that it is completely surrounded by urban areas which are only crossed by some tiny rivers that connect with the main river to the mountains behind.
Landscape planning will improve the conditions of the biggest amount of agricultural land left in the surroundings of Barcelona. In order to do that, the work has been divided in three objectives:
1. Production and economy. The agricultural land has to be well structured to keep its competitive and qualitative production.
2. Ecology. Natural systems and biodiversity have to be guaranteed in a qualified landscape environment.
3. Society. Cultural and landscape elements have to be preserved in order to be visited as leisure and educational places.
