Architecture concludes at the UPCT projecting a flood park with native vegetation on the promenade of Benipila (04/09/2019)

The UPCT student José Galindo Iñiguez has finished his undergraduate studies in Architecture with a final project in which he proposes the creation of an urban flood park in the Rambla de Benipila, on the western limit of Cartagena.

The objective of the project is to integrate the rambla into the urban space, giving use to what is now “an edge of the city, a physical and mental emptiness where the city ends at once”, in the words of the student of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena .

"It would be idyllic if the City Council took into account my proposal," adds the author of a paper directed by Marcos Ros and Fernando García.

The park, which would be located between the Cartagonova stadium and the San Vicente de Paul school, in the green space reserved by the partial plan of the Rambla Sector, would revege the promenade with native species and adapted to the different flooding of its terraces in height, such as Sabinas blackberry, palm and white poplars.

A channel to drain the usual low rainfall would allow the park to be used even when it rains.

“There is a mapping of flood areas of the Hydrographic Confederation that takes into account the statistical possibility of rains of greater or lesser magnitude.

The project takes these data into account so that the park can operate, at the highest levels, even during extreme rainfalls that occur once every 100 years, ”explains Fernando García, of the UPCT Urban Research Laboratory.

The park would be permeable to the rest of the city, breaking the uniformity of the current breastplate to give access to the channel, and would include a recreational and sports center with tracks and rooms for the practice of different physical activities.
