The park was designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel and opened in spring 2008. It covers a surface area of 55.000 m2 (600.000 sq ft) between the Carrer Bilbao, Carrer Marroc, Bac de Roda and Diagonal Avenue and provides an oasis of calm which clearly defines the inclusive, social spirit of the new Poblenou neighbourhood. The perimeter wall outside the park is covered with Mediterranean plants and a Gaudiesque gate leads inside. The main meeting place, the Plaça de la Sardana, is located in the centre of the park, surrounded by huts where kids can play.
