The design tries to recall the past of the place (the space between the fortifikation walls, later the rectory garden, then the popular part of the Ostrava exhibition area) and also reflect the planned development in the surrounding. For this reason, the park should be more then park a composed garden, with regard to the proximity of the historic core, and with different visual style and functionality, than is prevailing in the city. The special concept with two levels connected by a staircase and some saved details are a remnant of the original Brussels-style design. The fencing responds to the street lines and the closed last part of the old fortification and also strengthens the diversity and intimacy of the "interior" of the garden. The proposed greenery in the higher level of the park forms a composition with the existing dominant plane tree „Platanus acerifolia“, while in the lower level there is a stylized orchard of apple trees „Malus Evereste“ in a regular grid.

Paved areas are formed from threshing-floor. The terrace has a steel supporting structure based with respect to the root system of the plane tree using ground screws. The walls are walled up from “Těšín” sandstone and there are reflected nearby last rest of the original city fortifications.
