Running water

Water once again flows in the park; just as it did a century ago. Clean and flowing, it connects the different areas of the park. Connected to the city’s water system, it serves as an inner-city water storage facility and the water purification system with plants cleans the rainwater. Accessible to children of all ages, their parents and grandparents. Many partners were and are involved in the design, realisation and management.

“My dream water system consists of a meandering stream through a green valley, a shallow stream with natural elements, a pond with an accessible bank and a water square” says Lucy Bathgate.

Purification takes place via helophyte and UV filters. This project is made possible by a financial contribution from the province of North Brabant.
