The Paseo de la Isla is one of the most iconic green spaces of the city, housing a varied representation of plants and fauna, next to the River Arlanzón, passing through the city Burgos. The constant intervention has changed over the years and a current lack of maintenance deterioration needs a reform intervention and enhancement trying to minimize maintenance costs and adapting the space to a more rational use for the citizens. It proposes the installation of an "Ambigú" in the adjoining area to the river Arlanzón, new urban equipement, new paviments, a more suitable landscaping and a new irrigation and lighting systems.
