Plaça de Can Fabra occupies part of the site of the old Fabra i Coats cotton mill, whose central building has been preserved. The public space and green area surrounding it were reclaimed in stages, at the initiative Sant Andreu residents.

The Can Fabra Gardens have gradually adapted to the spaces surrounding them over the years. Like a made-to-measure suit that meets several needs. For example, there is a paved square and a sheet of water in front of the library andon one side, a green space intended as a neighbourhood garden. Screened from the traffic, there is also an area for sitting and relaxing in the shade and, behind the library, there is another landscaped area, where the greenery is distributed geometrically, which interacts with the architecture that frames it (the library building) through ramps, parterres and pergolas that catch the eye.
