Abstract: In 1892 the people of Huelva would go to the sanctuary of Virgen de la Cinta, and along the way named Paseo del Conquero they enjoyed nature and the woods and made them a living space. Following diverse urban circumstances, this tradition derived 100 years later in Huelva’s citizens’ claim to regain this land in what would become the great park of the city, the current Moret Park. Through the Moret Park Association –formed by more than 30 organizations including ecologist groups, political parties, residents’ associations, ONGs and trade unions- and in consensus with Huelva City Hall, the basic intervention criteria were established and the new park was consolidated as the new GREEN LUNG OF HUELVA. Moret Park design Project was developed following the research carried out by SAMA ( Such research deals with the development of a design project through collaborative work with Moret Park Platform, based on sustainability criteria. For this purpose, SAMA uses its technical knowledge in the fields of architecture and sustainable urban design and –through a process of meetings, debate and discussion- adapts its successive proposals to the needs and demands of the different collectives and potential users integrating the platform. The objective of the project is to create an urban forest in a participatory process.
