The Conseller de Promoció Econòmica i Desenvolupament Local del Consell de Mallorca, Jaume Alzamora, and the batle d’Inca, Virgilio Moreno, have visited the complete renovation of the Europa Park. In total, the works have cost 325,000 euros, of which the island institution has contributed 257,400 through subsidies for local development.
The work began with the first phase of the renovation of the paving around the children’s play area. In addition, street lighting was also replaced with LED technology.
In the last phase of the works, the accessibility of the park as a whole has been improved and the spaces and facilities have been adapted. The paving, therefore, has been completely renewed. In addition, the irrigation system has been changed and the areas with trees have been enlarged, beautifying the park and favouring shade.
In the actions carried out in recent months, an outdoor basketball court has also been built, a space for dogs has been created, the enclosure has been adapted for proper and safe exercise, and elements of callisthenics or urban gymnastics have been installed.
“With this project, we are responding to the demands of the neighbourhood in the area. The purpose of the multiple actions was to renovate and improve this public space, adapting it to the current needs of the public with new spaces and more areas for sports practice”, highlights Mayor Moreno.
For his part, councillor Alzamora recalled that “the Consell each year allocates 10 million euros to the municipalities of Mallorca so that they can make improvements to their spaces and infrastructure. The actions that have been carried out in this park are a perfect example of what they can achieve: a more welcoming city, with more rest and hiking areas, with equipment for sports? In short, we are helping the city councils to respond to the demands of the neighbourhood and the neighbourhood”.
The visit was also attended by the town councillor, Alice Weber, the town planning councillor, Andreu Caballero, and the directors of Local Development, Jaume Tomàs, and of Municipal Coordination and Support, Miquel Lluís Mestre.
