In Can Dragó the residents of Nou Barris have one of the biggest green spaces in the city, a place for doing sport, enjoying some leisure time and appreciating nature in all its splendour.

Merging nature with sport

Designed by Enric Penyes, Can Dragó is an area of transition, halfway between Avinguda Meridiana and the Sant Andreu Cemetery. Covering nearly 12 hectares,it is a vast expanse of land that incorporates various sports facilities, such as the largest covered swimming pools in the city, an athletics track, a multipurpose sports centre, a golf course and lots of recreation and amusement areas for its visitors.

It was opened in the 1990s and is named after a 17th-century farmhouse called Can Dragó that was demolished in 1973.It has been gradually expanding ever since it opened to become the multipurpose recreation park it is today.

Gardens for you to enjoy

The park area, specially designed for pedestrians and cyclists, can easily be crossed by the tree and bench lined avenues that separate it from the sports facilities

One of its more notable artistic attractions, standing on a grassy promontory in the middle of the park, is the replica of a sculpture designed by Pablo Gargallo,namely the Olympic Aurigas (charioteers).

Walking or cycling among the acacias,poplars and plane trees can be a real luxury, a short escape from the enormous tower blocks you find in Nou Barris.
