Since 1st December 2007 legal guidelines are in force concerning the creation of parks of national significance. The confederation (federal environmental department) promotes the emergence and operation of parks through the assignment of financial aid and park label. The initiative on behalf of the public for the creation of parks is thus no longer in act. The18 parks in operation or planned cover a 610,900 hectare-area, respectively 6,109 square kilometers, corresponding to 14.8% of Switzerland’s surface.

The parks can be divided into three categories:
  • National parks
  • Regional Nature Parks
  • Natural Adventure Parks
