The proposal reflects the importance of making this park not only a structure of ecological continuity, but also a qualified urban point, of confluence of resident population and train users, and also for crossing the line. With all the facilities that this implies.

This is based on simple and fluid lines, with some more worked details in terms of materials and vegetation creating a nice and fluid set. Generally taking advantage of the existing topography as well as the views and characteristics of the surroundings.

The configuration of the Park allows the creation of several scenarios that together form a renewed landscape, where the freedom of the meadows, the borders, the trees, the clearings, the orchard, the terraces and squares with different scales.


An ecological park, an urban centrality, a community space.
