The general objective of the project is the functional conversion and reuse of an unused land in Alexandria's urban area and its transformation into a recreational and leisure area for the population, in order to improve the living conditions of the citizens. The investment aims at transforming the unused land into an area friendly to the inhabitants, a recreation, sport and leisure area, rich in vegetation. The specific objectives of the project are represented by O.S.1 Reuse of the park space through the development of public green spaces (19,368.00 sqm of open space, 17,972 sqm of green space), equipping with specific equipment and commissioning and O.S.2 Improvement of the urban environment by reducing pollution.
