The development of this Metropolitan Park is an initiative of the Rotterdam-Dordrecht region and the state. In an interactive process with all surrounding municipalities and the most important stake holders and decision makers, the future development potential was investigated. The main goal of the park isto improve the spatial quality, liveability and economic potential of the surrounding cities. Our vision focuses on the development of a framework as a basis for flexible future development. The landscape framework realizes a solid improvement of the spatial quality of the landscape, improves the general recreational accessibility of the area, and fortifies the local identities. Within this framework, six models have been developed, each with a different focus. Further investigation is based on the models ‘nature park’ and ‘water park’ models.
