Playing on the revelation of senses, Woodyatt park design proposes a dynamic combination of spaces to create a sustainable seasonal-influenced effervescence. With a renewed and strong anchor point to the city center, the park takes center stage and becomes easily accessible and attractive to the population. This vast urban park will host all the great cultural events and gatherings.

The park will become an energetic generator activated by the connection of its dynamic schedule of events and its unique landscape qualities. Culture and knowledge will attract visitors and local residents and families will regain their place in the heart of the park.
