Santoška Park in Prague 5 has a long history that is still clearly legible at the site today. The main goal of the reconstruction project was to create a design concept that would resonate with both the historical context of the site and the modern demands placed on this popular recreational park. The park design offers new sporting opportunities and also supports quiet resting areas under the shade of centuries-old trees. It gently enhances the existing vegetation and links it to new planting areas.

Significant changes were made to the network of paths; unsuitable asphalt surfaces were replaced by granite blocks that correspond more readily to the historical character of the site. In the southern section of the park, in an area hidden from view from the paths, outdoor exercise equipment was installed which is well-used by park visitors. The site furniture was also changed and supplemented with new features, including an original semi-circular bench from solid wood. Necessary maintenance was carried out on existing vegetation and new trees were planted that blend in naturally with the existing growth. The axis of the main path, which culminates in a captivating view of the Vyšehrad panorama, was enhanced with a mixed perennial bed with shade-loving plants.
