Opening of the Park on New Holland Island

This year, the last days of summer will be crowned with the highly anticipated opening of New Holland Island.

Additionally, the island now has infrastructure for the engineering and technical support necessary to support the functions of the park and the restoration of the remaining structures.

The park landscaping has been designed by the Dutch landscape architecture and urban design bureau, West 8, while the concept for the temporary structures was created by St Petersburg-based architects, Sergey Bukin and Lyubov Leontieva (Ludi Architects).
