This proposal focuses on restoring the river’s ecosystem as it flows through the city of Toledo. The project constitutes an investment in the evolution of the river’s ecosystem, and goes well beyond one-off interventions based solely on design.

The cornerstone of this proposal is thus a step-by-step restoration of both river banks, which will in turn revive a self-sustaining ecosystem. This ecosystem will be available for public uses of varying intensities by means of a circular transportation system and a pedestrian network aligned with the course of the river. Public use of the river banks is compatible with the restoration of the local nature as the activity is concentrated into small areas, defined as landscape units.
