The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas; and the Councilor for Parks and Gardens, Joaquín Villazón, have visited the land in Finca Doña María where the Albaytar Park is being developed, called to be the new great green lung for Benalmádena and in which about 12 million euros will be invested. “This government team has a firm commitment to the development of the Albaytar park, as shown by the recent tenders related to this project”, has valued the mayor.
Navas ha recordado que el parque cuenta con una superficie de 22 hectáreas, “una extensión que permaneció durante muchos años llena de maleza y abandonada, y a la que por fin esta legislatura hemos dotado del impulso definitivo para su desarrollo”.
The mayor has announced that the works to close the park will be put out to tender shortly, with an investment of close to 200,000 euros. “The enclosure will allow to take even more care of the surroundings of the Albaytar park, in which we have already planted more than 300 trees, in addition to putting out to tender the drafting of the projects for phase 1 and 2 and the ditching of the Pantano stream.”
“Little by little we continue taking steps so that the park is the great green lung of Benalmádena. It is a project that will take years to carry out, but we are heading in the right direction towards that model of a sustainable city in which the well-being of the citizen prevails ”, he commented.
In relation to the improvements already executed or projected, Villazón indicated that “we are working in phases in the construction of the park. We started adapting the roads, and then planting trees, which we can see are already in the growth phase, to then put out to competition the ditching of the Pantano stream and that of the first and second phases of the park.
