New plan for Montjuic Park

A new twelve-year plan that aims to increase the number of green and open spaces while restricting the construction of new amenities. The plan aims to ensure that 75% of the park, which covers over 300 hectares, are earmarked for open spaces and green areas.

To keep the mountain’s unique identity and boost its appeal, the plan includes designating Montjuïc’s cliffs as areas of natural interest, conserving areas with archaeological remains and updating the boundaries o itsf protected historical gardens.

Actions planned include reducing the flow of private motor vehicles in the area while promoting more sustainable transport models, such as public transport, bicycles and pedestrians.

The area included in the plan is bounded by the cemetry to the south west, the Ronda Litoral (coastal ring road), Passeig de Montjuïc, Carrer Nou de la Rambla, Passeig de l’Exposició, Passeig de Santa Madrona, Carrer de la Guàrdia Urbana, Avinguda Rius i Taulet, Avinguda Marquès de Comillas, Carrer de la Dàlia, Carrer de la Guatlla, Carrer de la Font Florida and the park of the same name, Carrer dels Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat i Mare de Déu del Port up to Fossar de la Pedrera.
