What is Barakaldo Green Mesh?
The green mesh is the network of connections, pedestrian and / or cyclables, between the main urban and periurbanal green spaces of the municipality. In turn, its connection with the adjoining municipalities is part of the green belt of metropolitan Bilbao.
It is a network of sustainable mobility, through which we can move in a healthy way, know the cultural and natural heritage of the municipality and enjoy its parks, squares, recreational areas…
Biodiversity, inside and outside the city
The Ramón Rubial Botanical Garden, in the heart of the city, offers us the opportunity to discover a wide representation of the plant biodiversity of native and exotic species. Its location in a watchtower allows us to enjoy views of the nearby mountains.
The estuary is the main urban ecological corridor of the functional area of Bilbao Metropolitano. The removal of spills and the purification of the waters in recent decades has allowed life to return to the estuary: microscopic plankton, algae, crustaceans, fish (more than 55 species) and birds.
Parks, gardens, squares and city streets
Within the urban fabric of the municipality we also find a large sample of species of flora and fauna, we only have to pay a little attention. In addition to large trees and a significant number of significant monuments and contemporary works.
The riverside areas represent in themselves spaces of great importance for the development of the so-called riverside or gallery forests that, in addition to housing a significant plant diversity, are used by many faunistic species to move safely without exposure to predators. They are valuable ecological corridors.
