Stefánia, Móra Park and Roosevelt Square in the center of Szeged were renovated with more than HuF 1.6 billion EU support, the local government informed MTI.
According to the announcement, the EU support covered HuF 850 million of the development costs (of 28,000 square meters), and the local government used HuF 827.5 million of its own resources. In Móra Park and Stefania, 24 trees, 4,200 shrubs and 4,700 flowers were planted, the lawn of Roosevelt Square was renewed, and it received 370 perennials. Dried or diseased trees were replaced with new ones.
The plants are irrigated in Stefania and Móra parks by an automatic system. Sidewalks were built in the three areas, and the park walkways were given a more permeable, water-resinous gravel pavement instead of pearl gravel. Bicycle supports, benches and waste bins were also placed. Public safety is enhanced by surveillance cameras.
In Stefania, there are several fitness equipment for those who want to do sports, a playground that offers children much more than the traditional ones, and the park is decorated with plant beds. As part of the investment, Stefania’s transport infrastructure was also renewed.
