With the use of the water line, a reflecting pool of great dimensions was built. The water line is crossed by two wooden bridges. There are playground areas, extreme sports; free sports and the execution of large outdoor events such as music concerts are allowed, as this is a multifaceted park meant especially for small fairs and outdoor exhibitions.

It is presented as an open park crossed by walking paths, centered on a large central square referenced by the magnificent Palm existent.
