SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Santa Catalina Park, which will be located in La Gallega, in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, will be the largest inclusive children’s space on the island with more than 3,600 square meters and an investment of one million euros by the Cabildo de Tenerife.
“We are facing the largest investment for an inclusive children’s leisure space that has been made on this island and it is an infrastructure that is part of the Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development strategy for the Southwest area of the Metropolitan Area. Said project has been drawn up by the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council”, highlighted President Pedro Martín in a note.
Martín pointed out that this action “will complement a space that demands urban leisure options, and will serve to give the population a breather, in that objective of the Cabildo to provide the municipalities with friendly places where they can be close to natural resources and, as is also done on the coast, softening and bringing the population closer to the sea to improve the environments of the cities”.
Currently, the project is in public information and, once this period is over, if there are no allegations, the contracting and bidding file for the works will be approved.
The president also stressed that “as it could not be otherwise, this project will be inclusive and will include the installation of a toilet adapted for people with ostomies as well.”
In this regard, he recalled that “the Cabildo de Tenerife thus shows its commitment to accessibility and this installation is added to other similar ones installed in Playa Jardín and in the bus station in Puerto de la Cruz, in the Puerto-Ciudad building, in the Island Center for Volunteer Entities and at the bus interchange in Santa Cruz”.
For his part, the insular director of Territory Planning, Emilio Fariña, indicated that the park will have five playgrounds and three adventure zones, in which a dome, a zip line and a maze will be installed, which will be added to two areas rest with a total of six tables.
In addition, the planting of vegetation is planned, in particular Ficus maclellandii, chestnut and walnut trees, whose purpose is to isolate the play areas from the rest of the park and to protect them from the wind and sow grass.
These works will include many actions such as earthworks, manufacture of concrete slabs, paving, installation of urban furniture such as benches, litter bins, tables, installation of irrigation, lighting, sanitation and rainwater, children’s play equipment and an ostomized and adapted toilet. .
