El Parc del Fòrum

A Large Open Space Ideal for Festivals and Other Events

Located on the coast in the El Besòs i El Maresme neighbourhood in the District of Sant Martí, the Parc del Fòrum was originally built for the Fòrum Universal de les Cultures international cultural event in 2004.

It is not really a park or a green zone but rather a number of spaces and facilities where all manner of festivals and events are held, including Primavera Sound, Festival Cruïlla, Feria d'Abril, LKXA Extreme and many more.

The Parc's main spaces are l'Esplanada, an open space in front of the sea where most of the fairs and festivals are held, CCIB-Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona, Barcelona's international conference centre, the Edifici Fòrum and the Museu Blau.

There is also a Zona dels Banys or Bathing Zone and the Port Fòrum marina and there are plans to build a Marine Zoo, which will turn the park into a 6tourist attraction all year round.
