Last performance in 2004

The councilor has lamented “the obvious state of deterioration“of this space, in which It was last performed in 2004. The action in the Agriculture gardens will include intervention in the street furniture, which will be restored or replaced; the retaining wall repair from Cervantes Avenue; The monument to Julio Romero de Torres; and will take care of repair and replacement of tiles in the former Seneca library and benchesan artisanal and laborious work that is being considered to be commissioned from a company specialized in ceramics of The Rambla. Ruiz Madruga’s idea is to recover this space into a reading corner as it was in the past, where books were offered in a self-management service for users until the 60s.

Dovecote and curbs

Also the idea is intervene on curbs and raised pavements by the roots of the trees; clean and paint the park buildings such as the dovecote and the Parks and Gardens booth; clean the fountains and patch the railings, as well as repair the damaged lighting and fix the streetlights.

The project, once awarded, will have a execution period of between two and three months. “Faced with an obvious need, the government will act in this historic environment,” said Ruiz Madruga, who announced that work will also be done with its own resources in the garden. “It will be a beautiful performance that will not change the appearance of the park, but will rehabilitate it: we have to take care of our heritage.
