MIJAS infrastructure councillor, Jose Carlos Martin, has once again been out on the town’s streets to check out the most recent fruits of his labour.
In this case, he was on hand to admire the new ‘Parque del Agua’ (English, Park of Water), in the Las Cañadas district, which is now complete following a summer of hard work.
An investment of 162,000 euros has transformed an area of waste ground into a new public space, with ‘dry and wet’ childrens’ play areas, plus a number of seats and benches for weary parents to catch a break.
The park will be closed at night to prevent damage to the special water features which inspire its name. There are 340 metres of these, with various fountains, jets, and other features arranged in such a way to make them interactive and fun for children.
In addition, there are public toilets on site, while the careful planting of cork oak trees brings a local flavour to the area.
Martin said, “We are very happy because the children can now make use of this original park which strengthens our bid to revitalise the core of Las Lagunas.”
