  • The park project, alongside the pine woods in Nagüeles, includes a nursery to grow plants to decorate the town

The town hall has started work to prepare an area of land in Nagüeles for a new botanical gardens and nursery.

The facility, covering 13,280 square metres of land near the pine woods, will serve to supply seasonal flowering plants for the beds that decorate the town's streets and gardens, as well as being open to educational school visits.

The budget for the project comes from the 10-million-euro investment for priority works approved in May.

The nursery will be able to grow more than a million plants a year for the town, a supply that would have a market value of 1.3 million euros, according to municipal calculations, explained the local councillor for Public Works.
