The Los Villares Periurban Country Park was the first protected natural area of this kind to be set up in Andalusia. The site, formerly a Forestry Park of 60 hectares, was converted into a 484 hectare Periurban Country Park under the name "Los Villares Bajos" and a wide range of public facilities were installed. A set of bye-laws was created to protect the park and adapt it for public use with all the necessary recreational and educational facilities, as well as to encourage the local population to come into greater contact with nature.
