The proposal admits the creation of a new public park to the use of Fronteira’s population, associated with Atoleiros Battlefield new interpretation centre, located in a 12.100 m2 area.

A well equipped public park compatible with the historic theme of the Atoleiros Battle, is the main theme for the conceptual design for this recreational public park. For it is defined with a geographical and special interpretation of the battle site, in a minor scale, which offers the park users a glimpse of the success that took place in 1384.According to archaeologists and historians, the battle strategic structure is represented, in this new park, by punctual and representative elements that symbolize the troop positions during the event.
