The Institute for Municipal Affairs (IAM) announced Friday that it plans to use four un-utilised land in the centre of Taipa, with a total area of about 19,000 square metres to build a park.
According to IAM, the park will promote environmental conservation with the use of tires as the main elements of the design.
The tire park that the IAM projects will be located on a land that has to the north, Kwong Tung Avenue; to the east, Rua de Bragança; to the south, Rua de Chaves; and to the west, the Nam San Building.
IAM has not disclosed when works on the tire park will start and when the park will be ready to use.
After its completion, the park will contribute to the increase in the area of leisure land in the Central Zone of Taipa, enriching the leisure atmosphere of community neighbourhoods and raising the quality of life of the population.
IAM said that they are cooperating with the Environmental Protection Services (DSPA) for the use of tires treated with cleaning, disinfection and polishing.
The park will use tires as a design element to connect the different spaces – Tire Paradise, Lawn for Parents and Children, Hill of Joy, World of Water and Sand, Skate Area, Field of Joy, Race Track and Children’s Scooter Track, among others.
The skate area for young people will be built according to the height differences of the original topography, with floors patterned in colourful geometric shapes.
A football field and a basketball court will also be installed in the Campo da Alegria.
