PROMENADE IN IVANIC GRAD

Is set on the top of the embankment of the river Lonja within urban limits. The idea for this walking trail came years ago from the inhabitants of Ivanic Grad, who wished to build a public space along the river as part of the project  ‘Idemo na Lonju’ (Let’s go to Lonja).


CONTEXT

The river Lonja is the longest river originating and ending in Croatia, entering the river Sava. This meandering river flows through green, hilly and lowland landscape and invites fishermen, walkers and nature lovers to come by.


CONCEPT

The concept is the curve following the curve of the riverbed and the landscape. The walking trail is 300 cm wide and has rest areas with benches along the trail.

It is 2 km long and designed into three sections: the first section is sports and recreation center Zelenjak, the second section extends from Sava bridge to Tomislav bridge, and the third section is located just by the old town. The Green belt along the river and walking trail is designed as an art zone for sculptures, recreation and sports… The walking trail is constructed as a reinforced concrete slab 20 cm thick. The Walking-cycling trail is sanded all the way to generator openings (river pebbles), while rest areas are covered with mosaic plaster.


CURIOSITIES

We have designed four types of concrete benches and trash bins especially for this walking trail and the city of Ivanic Grad. A 9 mm thick layer of rubber is applied to the sitting area on the benches. Concrete molds for general elements are property of the city and are used in other public areas in the city. This way the city of Ivanic Grad has gained a recognizable, particular and visual identity of the entire public space and the walking trails have become a healthy everyday habit for the people of the city.
