Most of these children’s playgrounds include new rubber flooring and better organization that separates quiet play areas and dynamic play areas. They are also safer for children and more accessible: they include routes to different spaces or elements that make it possible for everyone to enjoy the game.
Half of these renovated areas are already open to the public, and the rest will open in a few days or weeks. The list of renovated areas is as follows:
- Ciutadella ParkLlobregat side of Joan Fiveller square (Ciutat Vella)
- The two play areas of Pla de Palau (Old Town)
- Joan Miró Park (The Example)
- The Polvorí (Sants-Montjuïc)
- White RiverQuetzal block patio (Sants-Montjuïc)
- Mig Square in Can Clos (Sants-Montjuïc)
- Parque de la Oreneta (Sarrià-Sant Gervasi)
- Plaza de Martí Llauradó (Sarrià-Sant Gervasi)
- Bacardi Square (Horta-Guinardó)
- Jardines de Rosa de Luxemburg (Horta-Guinardó)
- Walking in Valldauraalong Lorena street (Nou Barris)
In addition, other complementary actions were also carried out, such as the installation of calisthenics circuits in Avenida del Estadi (Sants-Montjuïc), in the Central Park of Nou Barris and in the gardens of Xavier Benguerel (Sant Martí).
The budget for all these actions is 1.1 million euros, and it is part of the Comprehensive Maintenance Plan, provided by Pla Endreça Barcelona.
On the other hand, the executive project for thirty more children’s playgrounds, located in twenty spaces, is already planned, which will allow the elements of the game to be changed, include elements of accessibility and improve the uses and spaces.
