The park at Djäkneberget and its surroundings is a beloved area in the city of Västerås. The area is one of the most popular sites for outdoor life and recreation of all sorts and it attracts different kind of people at different times during the day. The park includes a pond-system where protected species of frog and toad live and breed. These animals have been the objects for many discussions concerning whether to explore the closeby areas or not. The prospected area is situated just next to one of the main ponds and consists of valuable foundationwalls were experts predict that the frogs and toads spend the winter. The municipality has now decided to restore this area to parkland. Because of the areas fascinating history I have chosen to do some research and give a short resume about it. For example are the existing park of Djäkneberget and its founder described together with a short description of the watersystem with the watertower that is situated in the area. The protected frog- and toadspecies are important for the area of Djäkneberget and they are described in a separate section. As a part of reaching the best possible design for the new park I have chosen to make one section about parks in the larger context. What they are about, why we have them and what makes a "good" public park. In the analys-section are different kinds of analysis described. Short reviews on how they have been used to point out the basic conditions, main issues and concernes for Djäkneberget is also included. The designproposal is presented in a separate section and consist of an illustrated plan over the site, sections, detail-studies and perspectives. In the conclusion I try to sum up my thoughts about the designprocess and give the reader a review for this work.
