Design Asia Park presented
In January, the concept design for a new city park of six hectares was presented in the community center. During the participation evenings, many enthusiastic residents came to respond to the new park design. The central water feature adds a new layer to the park and is an important support for a sustainable water structure at neighborhood level. The new design transforms the former peripheral location into a bustling neighborhood park. Sites for extensive management and planting are used to improve the ecology in the park. Two new residential towers with an underground parking facility will be integrated into the park. Residents reacted enthusiastically to the design that was widely supported. The Municipality of Haarlem works together with the Rijnland Water Board, REDscape and Civilink on the further elaboration of the water feature and park design.
