This paper proposes a solution for the extension of the promenade and entertainment area, the green arrangement of the lower Danube river bank in Galati. For the extension of the seafront width with cycle and roller tracks, alternating with paths for the promenade and creating areas for recreation activities with the maintenance of the existing green spaces, the solution of floating structures was chosen. An autonomous module that has been drawn and modeled 3D in Punch Home Design in various design forms, so as to allow it to be assembled in various positions and interconnect the modules between them. Hydrodynamic calculations of the module positioned differently from the shore were made in XFlow Module (SolidWorks). The study reveals the two-fold role of the structures: extension of the promenade green areas and control of the currents that influence the erosion phenomenon (protection) the left bank of the Danube and the natural dredging of the river's bottom The results obtained can stand at the bottom of some feasibility studies ordered by the urbanism committee of the municipality.
