Children’s play area in Sant Ferran to become reality this summer

The €249,288 project is expected to take four months, with completion scheduled for late June.

Youth services and citizen participation chief Vanessa Parellada welcomed the news that the highly-anticipated play area would soon become a reality, saying, “This is something that kids across the island will be able to enjoy”. The councillor pointed out that the park had received funding after the Consell d’Entitats voted to back the idea as part of Formentera’s Participatory Spending initiative. The original idea came to the league of civic organisations by way of the Sant Ferran Association of Students’ Parents (APIMA), which also took part in the design. “Thanks are in order for all who took part and took time out for the community”, said Parellada.

The 295-square-metre park will include an astroturfed resting area; four freshly planted trees; a wooden platform, pergola and bench, and a play area with rubber flooring. The play area will feature play equipment, a swing set and seasaw. The park will be encircled with blocks of composite cement and a wooden gate and equipped with a drinking fountain and dustbin.
