The park is to be found in the neighbourhood of Barrio del Pilar, Taco, on a large block with many services that, in addition to the park itself, includes a sports area and religious facilities (parishes and a future church).
The park is built atop a drop of 11.50 metres. Following the design guidelines of the project, it is dealt with on three levels: the pavement gradually widens at the top until it forms the church square; the middle level is the “great neighbourhood relationship space” required in the call for bids, a central lawn of about 2,000 m2 surrounded by leafy trees and palm trees – like a clearing in the forest around which play areas and an exposed concrete kiosk shaded by a weathering steel shade are located. From this area, the views of the whole ensemble couldn’t be better. The lower level is both a winter garden of palm trees and a pedestrian street that crosses the block and connects the park with the sports area.
The three levels are connected by a wide, continuous ramp of coloured setts accompanied by a line of flowering trees. The rough, treated concrete pavement comes in modules in a 2-metre-square mesh, topped with a kerb made of weathering steel plate. The same material is used for the fencing of the complex, made of corrugated plates supported on the retaining walls, built-in prefabricated concrete using buttresses and a plate that is just 13 cm thick. On the wall surfaces, made of exposed aggregate in different intensities, a bamboo forest is embedded resembling fossilised nature.
This project was selected for the XIII CANARY ISLANDS ARCHITECTURE AWARD 2006-07 in the category of landscape architecture and public space projects.
