The climate park Maniny park, Rohan island and Libeñ island in urban district Prague 8 covers an area of 56 hectares. Located along the meandering Vltava River, the metropolitan park restores the link between the river and the city.
This ambitious project marks the third large-scale green project along the river in which the city of Prague is committed to river restoration with flood control measures combined with a metropolitan park development. OMGEVING was able to convince the jury of the international design competition with a future-proof development strategy that responds to the natural and urban dynamics of the project zone. The elongated climate park will have a robust blue-green framework anchored to the surrounding urban fabric and partly floodable. This will give Prague residents a flood-proof park with diverse park functions for all ages. New cycling and walking paths bring residents to the river along which several park rooms have been programmed. In doing so, the climate park responds to both the natural dynamics of the river and the urban dynamics of Prague District 8. Here, the redevelopment into a large-scale park is fully committed to climate adaptation, biodiversity, CO2 neutrality, circularity and sustainable mobility.
The refinement of the competition proposal will follow during a co-creative process. OMGEVING can count on the support of local partners Fiser, VRV and Sindlar in this process.
