Leidsche Rijn Park

West 8 as Landscape Architects

The design for Leidsche Rijn Park was the outcome of a design competition held in 1997. The concept for the park, to be constructed in a new residential district of 35.000 homes to the west of Utrecht, is based on creating three ‘edges’ that shield the park from its suburban surroundings.

The edges consist of a re-excavated meander of the River Rhine, a nine-kilometer long ecological zone and a four kilometer long pergola around the core of the park.
