The paper presents the results of a study regarding the landscape regeneration and reintegration of the Trivale Forest-Park. The peri-urban forest area stretches from the Zoological Garden to the city center, 2 km away from the Argeş River. The Trivale Park lies in the southern part of the studied site. The site contains vegetal and built elements with a historical value, which date back to the beginning of the 20th century. The methodological approach includes 4 main stages: information gathering, on-site documentation, the synthetisation of the information resulting from the analyses conducted in the studied area and the elaboration of the strategy of reintegration and regeneration of the landscape at a functional and aesthetic level. The synthesis revealed that the forest is a green enclave threatened by real estate development and the local's negligence, being unintegrated at a functional level in the urban context. The proposed solution for the exploitation of the forest-park consists in its activation as green lung of the city. The main objectives of the strategy are the insertion of new functions in the forest through minimal and sustainable interventions, and the aesthetic exploitation of the historical park in the context of the integration of the forest-park.
