A old park of the city, April 30th Park has many big old trees and a planting grid that is very unique, as well as a system of horizontal, vertical and diagonal paths. The design solution is to keep the whole grid and the plants and develop from that, adding more public facilities to serve the community. The existing planters cracked because of the overgrowing trees are replaced with bigger ones to give the roots more space to breath. A new pedestrian grid added at a 45o angle, intertwined with the old one, is the background on which contemporary patterns are developed.
