Dossier Historic parks

Historic park encompass both old parks and (public) gardens, as well as green spaces such as (former) country estates and landscape fragments in an urban context. Dependent on historic value, situation, (intended) use and quality of the lay-out as a whole the options are restoration, revitalization, reorganization or renewal. Important in choosing the right approach are the stylistic characteristics of the present verses the original lay-out. Other important aspects such as ensemble value (planting and constructions for instance buildings, ornaments, bridges, etcetera) and the occurrence of dendrologically interesting species should also be taken into consideration when deciding on how to tackle historic parks and green spaces.

Some example project will be added here later.
