The service has been conceived for people to spend time, work, read, chat or just relax. It will be run by a labour insertion company and will also provide information on future activities and how the space and the surrounding area works.

La Clariana is open from 11 am to 8 pm between April and October, and from 11 am to 7 pm between November and March.

Activity programme defined with organisations

The management model for the space will be developed between now and December, with the clearing to function as an outdoor facility. Organisations and nearby facilities will take part in the activity programme to be offered there.

This form of co-production makes it possible to define regular activities which vary in nature and take into account education and awareness about greenery and biodiversity, aimed at schools and the general public alike.

A pilot project was conducted for activities to be organised in La Clariana over the summer. Notable projects included support for summer schools operated by the Leonor Serrano municipal nursery school and by the Escola Gaia; children’s activities, allowing 920 families to enjoy the space on Saturdays and Sundays, and Tai-chi, which began in July with some twenty participants.
