In line with the municipal government commitment to revitalise the inner quadrangles of blocks in L’Eixample and regain new green spaces for people, work will be carried out in two gardens.

Jardins d’Elena Maseras: vegetation to be renewed and an automatic watering system installed, with furniture, paving and drainage all improved. This project has a budget of 120,000 euros and should take two months.

Jardins de Cèsar Martinell: work gets under way at the end of November to renew vegetation in these gardens, with new trees and bushes and a new watering system to maintain them properly.

Work will be carried out to improve the southern part of the Parc de l’Espanya Industrial, right next to the neighbourhoods of Sants and Hostafrancs, to reconfigure the different spaces in the park so that each is used suitably (free space, circulation, pedestrians, activities etc.). Appropriate furniture will be installed for each space and each type of use, with Mediterranean vegetation also added. This project should take seven months and has a budget of 969,979 euros.

At the Granja de Can Mestres, more trees will be planted and a watering system installed, along with improvements to water connections and new drinking troughs in the outside area.
