Bermeo opens the Tonpoi natural space to public use

After more than two years of work, Bermeo has restored the natural environment of Tonpoi and has opened it to public use. The 3 km2 restored area, of high environmental value, stretches between the Talape and Tonpoi cliff areas, belongs to the Natura 2000 Network and is classified as a core area of the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve.

The peri-urban green infrastructure has been designed with natural materials and using sustainable gardening criteria, and has protective areas against the effects of climate change. The planting of local species of shrubs and trees will provide the park with shaded areas. In addition, the restoration of the Atlantic countryside in the surroundings will foster the creation of a microhabitat and biodiversity.

This initiative is part of action C.4.2: Key green infrastructure for improving urban-rural connection and the resilience of the territory.
