Treetop trip at the Serralves museum

20 | SEP | 2019

It is 250 meters to walk on a high level at the top of the tree tops

It is the "Treetop Walk", the new green ride inaugurated this Friday in the Serralves Foundation Park, in Porto. Visitors are invited to breathe nature, hear birds chirping and view the landscape from a different perspective.

 

Respect for nature


The route was created by architect Carlos Castanheira, with the collaboration of Álvaro Siza Vieira. Carlos Castanheira points out that the project ”was careful not to damage the ecosystem.” How? ”No trees were cut down, no roots were questioned," he explained. In addition, sustainable materials were used and the floor was mostly made of recycled wood recovered from demolition and fire. The idea is to meander through the trees "for a new perspective on the landscape around us" and a way to "enjoy a space that went unnoticed in the park.

 

On the way up through eucalyptus, pine, cedar or oak, the height varies between 1.50 and 25 meters. A project that will be an experience to observe the Park's biodiversity and to continue the work of protecting the fauna and flora developed by the Foundation several years ago.

Walking the wooden walkway will cost ten euros and can be done through guided tours or independently, with the help of a mobile application that will identify the points of interest. The structure can support 3,000 people, although the stipulated capacity does not exceed 250, in order to ensure quality visits.

 

Proudly built by PORTILAME

 

Portilame was the company responsible for the construction of the walkway, seeking to raise the usual professionalism to the requirement of the Serralves Foundation. Being a project designed to establish a deep and harmonious contact with nature, the team endeavored to carry out the project within the established objectives, seeking a full respect for the local nature.
