The area of Parco Nord is located in the northern part of Milan’s metropolitan area (approx. 9 Km from the city center). In origin, the area belonged to industrial companies specialized in mechanical products.

The production ceased during the late ‘60 with the main industries moving far apart from the metropolitan area of Milan. In early seventies, the large part of the area was bought by the Lombardia government through the “Parco Nord of Milan” (PNM) who was entrusted to build the park by removing industrial debris and planting forest trees.
