The artificial Lake of Farka was built in the 1980s. It is one of the biggest lakes in Albania and it has been used for irrigation. The lake is localized in the southern and south-western parts of Tirana.
The terrain around Farka Lake lies on a surface of 11.000 m2 and a longitude of 760 linear meters. Moreover, this area is distinguished for its biodiversity and the attractive hilly landscape and natural heritage. A part of this heritage is the objects, the landscapes, the ecosystems, the special habitats, the rare relics, the endemic or the endangered species. Being so, they have a special ecological, scientific, cultural, didactic, and touristic importance.
