BENALMADENA COUNCIL is in the process of completing its tree plan which Mayor Victor Navas believes will help to turn the town into a greener oasis on the Costa del Sol and the first part of the programme is to budget €35,000 for the future Ibn al-Baytar park.
Some 250 trees will be planted as the structure of the park unfolds and there will be a mixture of different trees chosen for their indigenous nature as well as ease of adaptation to local soil all of which will enhance the Mediterranean feel and also give a flavour of a typical Casablanca park.
Councillor for Parks and Gardens, Joaquín Villazón, confirmed that the tress will be planted in a manner which would allow visitors to follow comfortable trails which would give plenty of shade whilst enhancing the landscape and enriching local diversity.
