Nerja parks closed as €150,000 upgrade kicks off.
NERJA Council has begun a scheme to improve the municipality’s playgrounds, kicking off the project the Parque Verano Azul in Calle Antonio Ferrandis Chanquete.
The park will be closed while dated facilities are replaced and new flooring is laid.
“The plan has a budget of €150,000 and includes the execution of improvements in all the parks of the municipality,” said councillor Gema García.
“This highlights the commitment of the local authority in improving the children’s areas of the local parks for the benefit of the safety and enjoyment of children, and the tranquility parents.
“We are going to replace a large number of facilities that are in poor general condition due to their age and use in different municipal parks,” she added.
The playgrounds will remain closed for safety reasons.
“We ask for your understanding for the inconvenience that may be caused,” said García.
“We have made these municipal sports facilities available to the East Malaga-Axarquia Health Management Area in order to speed up the mass vaccination process and to be able to reach immunity,” explained Mayor José Alberto Armijo.
“We are going to support the Ministry of Health and Families in everything they need to keep Nerja as a safe municipality,” he added.
