Biological-Environmental and Space Valorization Park-Forest »Komrčar« on the Island of Rab     pdf     HR     EN 153
Summary: Once a deserted pasture, the Komrčar forest on the island
of Rab started to be afforested in 1890 thanks to the Rab chief forester
Pravdoje Belia. By the bill of Law issued on March 15. 1965, the Institute
of environmental protection in Zagreb registered the forest in the Records of
protected nature areas under number 187 and in the category of nature
reserves. According to the current Law of nature protection (TV. N. No.
3011994), the forest is today listed in the category of park forests.

In spite of the neglected vegetation in some places and the necessity of
sanctions in the devastated parts, today´s status of the park is such that
landscape architectural work would be desirable in order to exploit the great
potentials of the park.

The authors did a detailed research in 1992 and 1993. It first encompassed
the greater area which, besides the 8.3 ha Komrčar forest, also included the
adjoining nature areas along the promenade Fra Odorik Badurina up to the

0.6 ha large Trg Slobode square. There is also the terraced 1.9 ha surface
below the town cemetery and the 0.5 ha graveyard itself. Each part was
dendrologically completely investigated, i.e. all tree species were recorded.
The paper presents the standpoint in the from of the guidelines for revitalization,
improvement and proposed amanagement of each of the areas separately,
regarding the whole nature area as a unique biological and environmental

The Komrčar park forest itself is divided into three zones as to he space,
function and biological I environmental diversity—protecional zone, park forest
zone and park zone.

This division enables creative operations in all three zones, particularly I
and II. Besides improvements of the devastated areas, landscape-architectural

work would entail a number of small jobs in the park composition, supplementing
certain areas with new elements such as trees, brushes, flowers, paths,
benches, tables, information panels,fountains, sculptures, etc.

The revitalization of the Komrčar forest park should take into consideration
both the present status and the future demands and possibilities.

New contents and the suggested categories will provide sufficient reasons
for the »look inside«, whereby the number of visitors, particularly tourists,
will increase.

Proper improvement and maintenance programme of the forest park will
enable the spatial and biological valorization. In practice, the programme will
equally respect all the components:

— natural appearance
— culture and history
— environment
— style
— aesthetics
— biology and ecology
— tourism and management
Among the basic issues to be solved in the course of park´s renovation
is the choice of vegetation, which is the significant feature of any open space.
Preference should be given to the autochtonous plants, i.e. the Mediterranean
tree species, brushwood and undergrowth.
A jewel in the stone ring of the old Rab, Komrčar deserves all expert
work it can get. Its significance in terms of biology, and recreation is inco,parable.
Though small in area, the forest park is heterogeneous as to the relief,
ecology and vegetation. Therefore the work should be directed to its zonation.
Considering the size of the area, every operation should be planned and
carried out at the smallest possible scale. Each tall tree, bush or a group of
trees present a whole in terms of biology, ecology and landscape value. This
concept should also be the guideline in creating the management programme
of the forest park.$
