In 2001, the Comú of La Massana commissioned the production of the Estudi de viabilitat i orientació estratègica per a la creació d’un espai natural protegit a l’àrea del Coma Pedrosa (La Massana)[Study of the feasibility and strategic orientation for the creation of a natural protected open space in the area of Coma Pedrosa (La Massana)].
The results of the study allowed it to be concluded that the creation of a natural protected open space was justified and feasible, and the declaration of Les Valls del Coma Pedrosa Natural Park was made, by means of a communal ordinance, on 18 December 2003.
On 27 July 2006, a new ordinance was published, which led to the creation of the current Les Valls del Comapedrosa Communal Natural Park and extended the limits of the protected area. The current protected surface area is 1,542.6 ha (15.42 km2).
Finally, on 14 April 2014, the wetlands in the park were added to the list of Wetlands of International Importance of the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands and their resources.

The first documented climb to the top of Comapedrosa was on 22 September 1858, by a team consisting of six members of the Spanish-Andorran committee that marked out the frontier between the two countries. To celebrate this event, 22 September was declared Day of the Park.
