What is a park?
The parks are home to a wide range of habitats, a rich flora and fauna, a multi-faceted cultural heritage and intact townscapes and villages.
The Swiss parks cannot exist without the commitment of their inhabitants. They're the ones who provide the impetus to launch the project. They also form the interest groups that take part in planning the project, in establishing the park and finally in its management. The park is mainly supported by its municipalities.
The Swiss parks preserve their precious natural and cultural resources and highlight their value. They commit to boosting and strengthening their regional economy.
They offer visitors real and inspiring experiences, contact with the local community, fascinating stories and delicious local specialties
