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 stakeholders and decision makers, the future development potential was investigated. The main goal of the park is to improve the spatial quality, livability and economic potential of the surrounding cities. Our vision focuses on the elaboration 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 accessibility to recreation of the area, and fortifies the local identities. Within this framework, six models have been developed, each with a different focus. Further investigation was based on the ‘nature park’ and ‘water park’ models.
