The Pilate sector is characterized by a large green open space in the Southwest, where the land is fertile.
On the other hand, from the terraces on the merlon - which form a skyline from the ring road to the railway station - the space allow a perspective on the landscape of the entire Pilate sector.
The large open space of the park is marked by transversal tree bands extending to the rest of the ZAC, beyond the railway track.
These strips draw lines that guide the view towards the horizon, and are made up by existing trees and enriched with new trees (oaks, walnut trees, plane trees, ash trees, aspens).
