Santa Cruz pledges to renovate all the city’s green areas
Santa Cruz city council has approved the tender for the renovation of La Estrella Park with a budget of more than one million euros.
The works have a base budget of 1,055,398 euros, will begin at the beginning of next year and will have an execu-tion period of eleven months.
The Parque de la Estrella is located in Santa María del Mar and this project had been stagnant for nearly a year.
The main objective of the action is to recover a park of vital importance and size for the residents of the southwest and, in addition, to set up a place that must be in correct conditions for the enjoyment and use of all the inhabitants of this area.
“This is an indispensable space with enormous potential that must be ready as soon as possible so that the residents of the southwest can enjoy this green area abandoned for many years,” said the councillor for community welfare, José Ángel Martín, who added that since the first day of the legislature they have worked to unblock this important project.
Sr. Martín said that the recovery of the green areas of the city is one of the main objectives of the session and a line that the Mayor of the city, Patricia Hernández, has marked as a priority.
The councillor explained that during the first phase, which is the one with the main investment, a reorganisation of the spaces will be undertaken and work will be carried out both in the park’s landscape spaces and in the park’s walks.
Among the main actions also highlights the adequacy of the spaces for walking, which are currently in a state not suitable for use. “We must make the roads, an issue that seems obvious, but it is currently impossible to tour the park,” said José Ángel Martín.
Likewise, a children’s space and a kiosk will be launched that will serve the citizens.
”We are very aware that the renovation and improve-ment of this space is very necessary both for the residents of Santa María del Mar and for the entire southwest, who will be able to enjoy this wonderful enclave once the works are finished,”concluded the councilor.
