Grand opening of Sant Ferran playground

foto 2021 parc sant ferranEarlier this morning Consell de Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer and chief of the departments of youth and citizen participation Vanessa Parellada visited the new children’s play area that opened today in Sant Ferran.

President Ferrer voiced satisfaction at pulling the curtain back on a new public facility. “Sant Ferran residents have long asked for a playground”, said the local chief. “Kids across the island will be happy to know that today it’s finally a reality.”

Councillor Parellada traced funding for the park to a Consell d’Entitats-approved allocation from the island’s participatory spending programme. The idea was first tabled by Sant Ferran Parents’ Association (APIMA), which also played a key part in the playground’s design. Parellada praised APIMA members for pitching in and investing time in their community.

Located at the juncture of two Sant Ferran arterials, Carrer Guillem de Montgrí and Carrer Major, the 295.35-sq.-metre park includes a rest area with artificial grass, wooden platform with pergola and bench and play area with rubber flooring.

The €249,288 play area features a multi-game structure, swings and see-saw. Two new trees have been planted near two existing junipers in the turfed lawn area. The entire playground will be fenced in — one part with concrete blocks and stones, and the other with a wooden fence.
