The Henrykowski Park project, which will bring a stretch of greenery to the area alongside the railway tracks in Tarnogaj, has taken its first steps.
The idea to create the park has long been popular with residents, however it wasn’t until recently that the project could be realised. PKP own the land bordering the railway tracks, so the city needed to reach agreement with them to allow the park to be built.
The plan then had to win enough votes from the Citizens’ Budget initiative, which it did comfortably.
The Henrykowski Park project is supported by the councils of Tarnogaj, Huby and Przedmieście Oławskie, whose residents desire better access to green areas. It is thought as much as 60,000 people will benefit from the scheme.
The construction of the park will take a few years. The first step is of course to decide on the design of the park itself. To work out what local residents would like from the park, the city have launched a consultation process.
Hopefully the park will take shape sooner rather than later, as it appears to be an attraction that many residents are looking forward to seeing.
