The U Čeňku Park was created, with small fields where fruit trees are growing, and the Svépravický Brook was also revitalised. More work has been completed around the pond, with a new island, and ten new bodies of water with a total area of 3,300 m2.
According to Petr Hlubuček, Prague Deputy Mayor for the area, this revitalisation work will allow for water to remain in the landscape, and the growth of plants will be a suitable habitat for aquatic and wetland animals. Martiňák Pond and its surroundings have great potential as a recreational area, which will be especially useful for the residents of Prague this year.
The slopes of the banks have also been changed and are now gentler. A new 13,000 m2 island was formed by digging a ten-metre-wide canal. A five-metre-high sand dune, which children are sure to love, was also created on the shore of the pond.
There was a surprising archaeological discovery during the revitalisation works, when the remains of a Germanic settlement from Neolithic or Roman times were found.
Meadows connected by paths and trails will be created in the next phase of the project later this year, and trees will be planted later.
