Los Batros Wetland Park

Topographies for ecology recovery
Improves urban life


Los Batros Wetland corresponds to an ecosystem constituted by the Los Batros estuary and its flood area through which the interconnected system of Laguna Grande and Laguna Chica drains into the Biobío River, an ecosystem that has suffered a high degree of human intervention, making it environmentally degraded area. To address this, and reinforcing what was expressed by community in participatory workshops, it was necessary to restore the wetland ecosystem by considering it as a floodable park in case of heavy rainfall. To achieve this, 5 new wetland zones with new topography were created with wetland and forest vegetation, generating small ecosystems with appropiate vegetation. On the other hand, the intervention was conceived as an integrating area for the locality, benefiting the community with recreational and educational activities. Thus, seeking to reduce inequality of access to green areas an public spaces in an sector with a lack of this type of infrastructure.
