This outdated neighbourhood park, located in a new real-estate residential development area, had welcomed hundreds of families and therefore needed a rejuvenation.
The new design is organised around the park pavilion and a vast grass field located in the center of the site. Two playgrounds were relocated, new play structures for kids and places to rest for parents were installed.Teenagers-adapted active landscape features are linked to the park by an orange bench-ribbon which becomes the project’s signature. A gathering space for local citizens featuring a water play area is also proposed.
