La Orotava residents urged to use new sports parks
Residents of La Orotava have been urged to use the new bio-health parks for the free practise of outdoor sports.
The local council says it is committed to provoding more of these facilities in the municipality and there are already four.
The first was in the Plaza Pedro Perdomo del Mayorazgo and is used daily by many people. Another has been created in the district of Benijos at a cost of 140,000 euros and will have facilities for walking, running or jogging around the site.
There are also seven appliances in the new park in the area of Villas El Pinalito-Las Cuevas and this is echoed in the Plaza Pepita Jiménez in the neighbourhood of La Luz. For both facilities, the econo-mic support of the insular institution has been provided.
Tenerife Cabildo has also invested in the adaptation of a sports park in the area of Carmenaty but in this case aimed at the practice of calisthenics, a sports activity on the rise.
In the coming months, the centre of Candelaria del Lomo will also have a biosaludable circuit, with a calisthenics zone
Councillor for services Felipe David Benítez said these facilities were being used more and more, not only by the elderly, but by athletes or people who simply want to perform exercises outdoors and at their own pace.
