A recreational waterfront where the city and nature meet
The central forest on the water, which is submerged during the annual monsoon floods, provides opportunities to explore nature and a 'messy', immersive marsh experience.
Meanwhile, the waterfront at the periphery of the park is designed to accommodate 20-year floods and to provide a zone that can meet the recreational needs of the local population, including natural playgrounds, beaches, fountains, and lawns.
There are also terraced constructed wetlands designed to filter urban runoff.
A flood-resilient boardwalk and spots for immersive contact with nature
A bike route and service road follow the park’s periphery.
A network of pedestrian paths and platforms surround the lake and provide access to the forested isles, offering visitors a myriad of opportunities to explore.
The boardwalk is designed to be submerged during 20-year flood events and annual monsoon floods, which can render the central part of the park inaccessible for several days at a time.
While the circular pedestrian and bike paths are above the 20-year flood event line, the boardwalk and platforms are made of prefabricated concrete, detached from the ground or floating above water, and can be easily washed clean after being submerged, along with the benches, which are made of aluminium.
