The park has a new network of paths, extended cycling path, trees, gazebos, and benches. The park also received new public lighting and a greenarea of about 7,350 m². The works took place over the entire western part of the park, which fills the space between the Jižní Město housing estate and the metro line C stations Opatov and Háje.
“After reconstruction, the new park in Chodov offers great opportunities for both relaxation, and sports and outdoor activities. New greenery and trees help to fight drought and heat islands that bother the residents of Prague on hot summer days,” Petr Hlubuček, the deputy Mayor of Prague, said.
