DOWNLOAD REPORT


Alfarrobeira urban park has been, since its opening on the 25th of April 2008, a point of attraction both for tourists and, essentially, for inhabitants who found in this place a pleasant space for recreation and leisure, equipped with the largest gaming infrastructure and children's playground in Albufeira, duly supported by a kiosk bar strategically located. The great success of this space is due to the children's playground installed in it, which has about 750m² and which includes numerous amusements for children from 2 to 14 years old. Associated with this, a large grassy area allows for active and informal recreation for children. The entire park is crossed by a cycling circuit with good accessibility and, in parallel, a network of pedestrian paths was designed that work in a complementary way and that serve the different spaces of the park and the peripheral accesses to it. The vegetation selected for the project is essentially Mediterranean in nature. With the planting of species similar to the formerly existing ones, it is possible to safeguard the memory of the place and, at the same time, reduce the space requirements in terms of maintenance and especially the water costs associated with these species, which are much lower than those required, in large part. part of the cases, by exotic species.
