In the next few weeks, the development of the Kállay grove will begin, we will install log furniture and create a new playground with 6 playground equipment,”

– he said in his post.

As the municipal representative also pointed out: The population of Újszeged is constantly growing, which is why it is also important that a new public park is created in this area, where the locals can relax near nature and, like Erzsébet Liget, children can also play near nature. for their safety, we are also building a fence around the Kállay grove.

The municipality is planting 100 saplings, which have been trained several times, to replace the old trees cut down in the Kállay grove. The goal is none other than to create a safe public park with new functions in Újszeged.

“At the same time, according to our plans, we will also plant a replacement forest in Törökkanizsa Street, in an area of three hectares, which is one hectare larger than the area of the Kállay grove. Personally, I am very happy that the people of Újszegedi love the Kállay grove and that there was such a serious commotion surrounding the cutting of trees there. This shows that the people of Szeged are nature-loving people and that the fight against climate change is also important to them. However, it was inevitable to cut down the diseased trees, as the ash and elm stands were very old,”
