  • 12 May, 23

Lapa Porto Hotel has spent 17,000 m2 to build the new urban park. It’s located in Lapa, behind the metro station of the same name, the new urban park will be built in stages. The first stage starts at the beginning of May and will take 12 months to be completed. 14,500 m2 of abandoned land at the back of Morro da Lapa were deforested and are now beginning to be leveled. The second construction phase covering over 2,500 m2 is expected to start in 2025.

A New Urban Park in Marriott Renaissance Lapa Hotel

There are two branches of an underground stream – the “Ribeira de Vilar”, which runs through Rua de Cervantes. The new urban project will bring it to the surface, allowing the green space to serve as a sponge during the winter, preventing flooding and serving as a protection dam for the riverside areas of the city. During periods of prolonged rain, it is likely that a mirror of water will appear in Lapa, similar to a lake. In addition to the planting of various species of trees, the park will have a “play path” and a “pedestrian path”.
