The Heart of the Park becomes a great equipped walkway and balcony-viewpoint of the city of Masnou.
The Project’s aim is to guarantee the connection between the two sides of the city within the park by recovering the street track that was foreseen by the General Plan. The project recovers this idea and transforms the new street layout into a wide promenade aimed to be the new park center. The proposed landscape will run along the East and West direction of the city. This direction allows the design of a walk along the disposed topography creating two distinguished levels: the lower terrace and the higher terrace.
The higher terrace, located on level +59.00, will have a sandstone plaza with an amphitheater, a kiosk and a garden filled with aromatic flowers. Moreover, further along the edge, trees will be placed with benches and streetlights to generate rest zones providing shading. The project foresees connections between the city and the new park along its perimeter. On the other hand, the second level will have paths connecting the urban environment with the Heart of the park.
