Games for children, bikes tolerated, animals not allowed … Everything you need to know about the new Carros park

The leisure park, which was completed a few weeks ago, offers sports areas and games for children. Its bylaws were presented to the city council on Tuesday.

It is completely new. Equipped for sports enthusiasts, hikers and families. In Carros, the new park “leisure and sports” de la Tourre covers more than two hectares. Total cost of the project: two million euros.

All playgrounds and devices (slide for children, paddle and basketball courts, water fountain, etc.) have been installed since the end of May, and the municipality has been able to adopt the internal rules. Presented at the last City Council, it allows for opening from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. year-round and naturally prioritizes pedestrians. Motor vehicles are prohibited, children’s bicycles and scooters are “tolerated”.

The deputy mayor’s delegate for sports and community life, Ludovic Othman, lamented the damage before the construction site was completed. “In less than ten days, the zen-attitude space was destroyed by the bikes and motorcycles that rode cross country on it. We were a little stiffer on it.” Another important point: the ban on pets, even on a leash. A matter of cleanliness according to the assistant.

The Caniparc project is still relevant

Elected opposition, Estelle Borne was surprised during the public rally. “The park is forbidden to us for dogs, while people who really love the park and the animals pick up the excrement. You can only walk with them in this place …”

Response from Ludovic Othman:

“Most athletes go in the feces, it has become the animals’ toilets. We can not tolerate that. When people settle in the grass, it is a disaster. We have put at the foot of every thank you from shavings that have been for waste … ” What about the caniparc project, claimed by Estelle Borne? “If you’re going to Lac du Broc, it’s a little embarrassing. We want this park. The municipality has not abandoned the project. This will simply take time because of the bloodless economy that Ludovic Othman reminded us of. “It’s still on the agenda, we’re working on it.” Yannick Bernard and his team want to open it before the end of the mandate.
