FOIETES PARK: Created from wasteland
Benidorm’s Park Receives FOPA Award
BENIDORM’S Foietes Park received an Alicante Public Works Federation (FOPA) award for its environment-friendly integration in urban surroundings.
Constructing the park involved the development, recovery, conversion and regeneration of the wasteland adjoining the Foietes ravine, a municipally-promoted undertaking was carried out by the OHL construction company.
Benidorm mayor Toni Perez expressed his satisfaction on receiving news of the prize for the best environmental project carried out in 2017 and 2018.
“This is recognition of the town hall’s support for urban regeneration based on the two premises of creating more usable open spaces for the local population and doing so while respecting the environment,” Perez said.
This was the second time that the Foietes park has received professional recognition, after being selected as a finalist for Madrid’s College of Civil Engineers Albert Serratosa City and Territory awards.
