MAJOR works on the Cuevas del Almanzora park the local council describes as the municipality’s “green lung” are progressing at a pace and should be completed by the end of August or beginning of September.
The €400,000 Luis Siret park project got back up and running a few weeks back following a paralysis of the works due to the coronavirus lockdown.
Improvements are being carried out throughout the 13,000 square metres of the park. They include placing power cables underground, creating a new pathway around the park, installing new children’s play areas, a 20-metre long zip line, picnic and ping-pong tables and better lighting.
There will also be a ‘pipican’ zone for dogs
Cuevas council is funding 65 per cent of the cost of the works and the Almeria provincial council the other 35 per cent.
