Manzanares Park

The geographical location of the park, south of Madrid, is crucial to the city, which is spreading progressively towards the Meseta and needs open ground to break the urban tissue and to provide citizens with contact with nature.
The ambition of the project was to transform an area containing the capital’s sanitation and electricity supply infrastructures into a major park that will also meet the recreational and sporting needs of the surrounding districts. The previous studies on the treatment of the river that begun as part of Madrid’s sanitation plan were followed by RBTA design project.
The Manzanares Park project means not only the creation of a great space devoted to nature but also the recuperation of a river, the river of Madrid. Both elements, nature and river, are the ideal components with which to produce synergy between the site and its vocation as a metropolitan park a park.
