Herăstrău is the largest public historical park in Bucharest that has developed in several phases during two main periods. All phases have left different imprints on its layout, leading to a hybrid and unclear image, but also on its undeniable values that list it as an historical monument. Lack of clear urban policies and protection of the historical park have led to the alteration of its emblematic images and perspectives during the last 30 years. The most important and iconic image of the park is represented by the central axis of the southern part, leading from Charles de Gaulle square towards the lake. Therefore, this paper will analyse its evolution and transformation in time, in order to find a better response to its present and urgent issue: Herăstrău’s restoration plan. Following a detailed historical landscape study looking at all design phases, this paper will present the main values of the park subjected to legal protection and will bring in a perhaps radical solution for the restoration of the axis and its central perspective.
