4 million euros to be invested in Palma’s parks


Mayor of Palma José Hila and Infrastructure Councillor Angélica Pastor presented the plan of park renovation and investment of four million euros in 57 parks in the city in the next eight months.

Mayor Hila stated: “It deepens the execution of the Neighbourhood Plan which has been underway for two years with the aim of promoting comprehensive improvements in public spaces in local areas, especially those on the periphery which have more needs”.

Councillor Pastor said: “100 percent accessibility does not exist because there will always be someone who cannot access a facility, but we work for full inclusion. Palma is on of the top ten European cities in terms of accessibility.”

Comprehensive action will be carried out in 17 parks and improvements will be made at another 40. The comprehensive improvements will affect Plaza de s’Indiotería, Crist Rei and the Wi-Fi Park of Nou Llevant, where urban furniture will be improved, new shaded areas created, gym equipment installed, new trees planted and security improved, reports Majorca Daily Bulletin.

Planting new trees and creating a skate park will occur in Parc de Sa Riera, while the improvements are also scheduled at Son Roca, Son Ximelis, Son Muntaner, the Jaume Lladó i Ferragut and Cotoner.

Cleaning of grafittis, bench renovations and signage improvement is scheduled for Parc de Santa Elizabeth, Parc Josep Maria Llompart, Ciutat Jardí, Parc de ses Estacions, Parc de la Ribera, es Carnatge and Parc de sa Sínia d’en Gil.
