The Tbilisi district of Chugureti will have a new public park boosting recreation in the area, with the City Hall announcing the ongoing construction on an area of 5,000 square metres in the Ivertubani settlement on Thursday.
Being built adjacent to the Kherkheulidze Street, the park will have pedestrian and bicycle paths, children's and sports stadiums, a recreational pavilion, as well as irrigation, lighting and video surveillance systems.
Carried out by the City Hall’s Environmental Protection Service, the 1.2 million ($445,270) project also covers the planting of various types of green plants and setting up of a green lawn with the hydroseeding method.
Mayor Kakha Kaladze, who visited the construction site earlier today, said the territory was inhabited by about 1,100 families, noting they had had “no opportunity to take their children and grandchildren" to accessible recreational spaces before.
He also pointed out the project had been the Government's pre-election promise and noted the City Hall also planned to build a kindergarten in the district.
