In Mariupol, reconstruction of Freedom Square and Peace is ongoing. The new recreation area will become a tourist magnet and a green garden of plants. Magnolia Daphne, tulip tree, sakura and Japanese spirea are just a small list of 38 species planned to be planted. Mayor Vadym Boichenko personally familiarized himself with the progress of work and the construction of new infrastructure facilities.
All dismantling works have already been completed on the square, underground utilities have been replaced and an irrigation system has been equipped. The contractor also mounts outdoor lighting and a multifunctional stage is under construction. The concept of the facility is unique. It resembles the structure of a part of the amphitheater, at the same time it can perform the functions of both the stage and the auditorium. Finishing work is underway to equip the sanitary zone and the Food hall.
The total project cost is about UAH 180 million. Sources of financing are city and regional budgets. In total, about 3.5 thousand trees, flowers and shrubs are planned to be planted on the square. 12 thousand square meters of lawn roll were covered. The arched fountain is already mounted for 100%.
