“Molló Parc” – new park for nature lovers

After several years of work, 12 hectares of la Berneda, in the valley of Camprodon, 7km from *Prats de Mollo, has been transformed into an animal park, expected to open on the 28 March 2010. Molló Parc is described by its creators, Patrimonial Solsa S.L, as ‘ideal for families and school groups to escape the routine and enjoy a day in the mountains’. It is neither a zoo nor a theme park, but a natural stretch of forest and grasslands alive with flora and fauna.

A marked walk of about 2 hours will take the visitor on a magical mystery tour amidst deer, roe deer, mouflon, brown bears, marmots,
goats….. There will also be farmyard animals such as chickens, rabbits,
ducks and a donkey, a cafeteria and several locations
spaces for picnic along with ‘chambres d’hotes’ for those wishing to spend the night communing with nature.

(*Prat is the Catalan word
for prairie or meadow. Prats de Mollo is so called after Mollo, a village over the
border in Spain, on whose Prats de Mollo was built,
hence the prairies of Mollo).
