The Mayor of Kazan city, Tatarstan Republic, Russia, Ilsur Metshin, announced global reconstruction and improvement of the city parks. “The first stage is to carefully reconstruct what we have. The trees are the background of the parks. We are planning to cut the old dried trees and to plant the new ones, improve the illumination, build cafes, play and sports grounds (workouts, basketball, football etc) and recreation zones to meet the needs of the visitors of all ages and preferences. The plan is to be strictly implemented,” – he said in the interview.
To that end the Fund of Cooperation for Improvement of Victory Park was established, the contribution is also supposed to be made by the directors of the industrial and business enterprises. Also one of the most visited and beloved by the citizens park - Gorky park - falls under this reconstruction.
