A distinct feature of the Rusovce Park Project is its grass roots groundwork.
The Project's main objective is to connect Rusovce Park with the network of parks on the Austrian-Slovakian cross-border area. During 2004, the project's team drafted guidelines to create a vision of how the park will look like in the future. The project began by cleaning and regenerating the park. The project's team determined how best to restore Rusovce Park's appearance as an "English" parkland, as well as incorporating the public's wishes.
Most importantly, this project has been based on direct citizen's participation.
