The Treetop walk in Serralves celebrates its first anniversary! The view is still unbeatable!

The Treetop walk celebrated its first anniversary this 14th September. It all started like this: architects Carlos Castanheira and Álvaro Siza Vieira, held the promise to "bring to Serralves new and different dimensions of enjoyment with nature" and so the Treetop Walk project was set in Serralves Park and it was inaugurated one year ago. 

The footbridge features a 260m extension course and surrounds one of the Serralves Park woods, revealing nature's different views, colours and various shades, offering a stunning viewing the biodiversity in the Park.

This walkway up in the sky enables a whole new way of interpreting the surrounding landscape, promoting the awareness raising on the importance of trees and the concept of nature's conservation as a natural heritage, of fundamental importance to the scientific community, at national and international levels. This project was concluded with the support of Ascendi.

Serralves boosts its relationship with different types of audiences, with its treetop walk taking 260 metres into the tree canopy for a different perspective on this spectacular environment, all the while offering a contrasting walk at ground level.
