A new dog-friendly park has been opened in Velez-Malaga with stamped concrete and equipped with benches and bins. Several lawns have been created and equipped with an irrigation system.
The first deputy mayor of Velez-Malaga Jesus Perez Atencia, together with the Councillor for the Environment Antonio Ariza, visited the La Mata dog park where a performance of remodeling and improvement has been completed.
Atencia pointed out that “within the plan to improve the parks and gardens of the municipality, we present what is the completion of the La Mata dog park in Velez-Malaga. This is a residential area where residents will soon be able to count on a friendlier space to walk their pets.”
“Through this program, we transform many of the green areas of our municipality and this is carried out through the Program for the Promotion of Agricultural Employment (PFEA).”
The mayor assured that “we were clear that we must meet the demands of our residents’ recreational areas. We have worked to improve the garden areas and turn these spaces into places adapted to people. I want to thank my colleague Antonio Ariza for the work he has been doing in the delegation.”
Ariza indicated that “from the Department of the Environment of the Velez-Malaga council we present the work carried out in the La Mata dog park, a space that has undergone an important transformation.”
“We have transformed the transit areas, making them in stamped concrete and providing them with benches and bins. Several lawn areas have been created and equipped with an irrigation system, with which we have created a more friendly area for our animals.”
“The exercise equipment has finally been relocated and a total of seventeen mulberry trees have been planted in the park in order to provide it with shady areas, as well as a new water source installed for the public.”
