Despite its being a part of a capital city, El Pardo with its woods and river is an ecologically important landscape. It enjoyed protection from development as a hunting estate associated with the Royal Palace of El Pardo. In the 1980s the European Union designated the Monte de El Pardo as a Special Protection Area for bird-life.
The district is administratively divided into 8 wards (Barrios):
- "El Monte de El Pardo".
