So close to the town Antwerpen, the location shows an unprecedented landscape character, with the meandering Koude Beek as the iconique element. The existing landscape qualities be preserved and strengthened. To solve existing water-management, the terrain levels are subtly modified and 4 wadis are integrated in the landscape.

Existing neighborhoods, new garden complexes, green seams and river valley are integrated into one. The garden complexes are robust and clearly recognizable clusters in the landscape. The path network gives access to the park from five different spots, connects all major locations and provides a continuous range perspective. The landscape appears as sometimes wet, sometimes dry, with matching flora and fauna. The vegetation in the green seams, with a nice grass mixture and a rich variety of flowers makes the promise of the master plan true. The entire design meets the pre-established goals for an integrated spatial organization including solutions for the water management issues, including development of the existing nature and a strong desire to make the park attractive for a wide range of users.  All the ingredients for an ecological, social, open, accessible and attractive park are there.
