The terrace is raised from the ground, as the part of the landscaped area is within the flooding zone. On average every ten years all pedestrian path is under water. The circular shape is partly designed to follow the turning radius of the cars, taking to the account the need of accessibility of the emergency vehicles to river. The load bearing structure of terrace is made of 49 pine wood frames but concrete slabs are used at some parts where existing water pipes are located under. The terrace is finished with larch planks with special anti-slip mills.
