Green areas to enjoy


24 m2 of green area per inhabitant

Thanks to the transformation process, Bilbao has been recovering green areas, both in urban and forest parks. In consequence, its inhabitants have shifted from 6 square meters per person in 1999 to 24 square meters by the time that the current projects will be completed.

The Green Ring of Bilbao

The forest parks are connected by the Green Ring of Bilbao, where you can walk the Great Route of Bilbao (GR), which goes through the Artxanda, Monte Avril, Arnotegi, Pagasarri and Arraiz parks. From there you can have the best pictures of the Bilbao skyline. The GR is accessible from the city centre, for example, you can go up to Artxanda hill by funicular.
