The highlights include colorful planters and colorful hills. The flowering planters have perennials in vibrant colors of the same range. They provide an ornamental plant mix which blooms from early spring to late autumn. Spring- and summer-flowering bulbs mixed in with the perennials help to prolong the bloom time and thus the intensity of colors. Ornamental grasses add structure to the plant beds in winter.
The colorful hills adjacent to the planters form a transition from the more intensive used areas of the park to the more natural areas. Along the downhill slopes of the hills which border the main paths, a grass swale (2-3m wide) will be able to gather excess water runoff.
The parking lot has a green character with grass tiles, low shrubs and flowering perennials to add to the colorful entrance of the park.
The colorful zones are planted with groups of flowering perennials in various colors mixed with evergreen perennials and ornamental grasses. They provide a variety in species. The colors are less intense than the highlight zones. Low perennials allow views to the water.
The islands, the waterfront and forested park areas together form the natural zone. The character is natural with accents of color. A natural wildflower seed mix with accents of low flowering perennials and bulbs provide subtle accents of color along the water. The seed mixture is carefully selected, based on the climate, soil and shady conditions. Early spring flowering bulbs under the trees provide an extra season of interest before the leaves appear on the trees in the park areas.
