Two golden "totems" more than two metres high mark the beginning of the central avenue to create a sort of entranceway. 15 more colourful sculpted totems echoing the Mediterranean flora and fauna are arranged along the avenue.
The entire perimeter of the lawn, measuring about one and a half kilometres, has been transformed into a cycling track with green or blue pavement in different areas, separated by white "tentacles" which accentuate the effect of the lights in the evening.
This unusual landscaping project has given the waterfront area a strong identity of its own and given the city back its view of the gulf, linking the sea with the city and especially its oldest neighbourhood, Kalsa.
