The Budapest Development Center (BFK) is also establishing a wetland habitat in the Csepel Island public park, and a public procurement for the design was announced recently. As can be read on the BFK website, the function of the “Wetland” meandering in the north-south direction is to keep the rainwater generated in the surrounding area in place, only passing it through the natural filter layer and discharging it to the Ráckeve (Soroksár) -Danube. By retaining rainwater, they provide natural wetland habitats for many plant and animal species, and wetlands also play a significant role in improving the urban microclimate.

The area of the wetland - reservoir and desiccator - is about 2.3 hectares, the rainwater of the related intensively built-up district must be collected from 10.9 hectares. In addition, the treatment of rainwater from other facilities in the park - BMX track (1.1 hectares) and clubhouse (1100 sqm), skatepark (1.5 hectares), pavilions (500 sqm) - must be taken into account.
