PALMA de Mallorca will reopen a huge proportion of its parks this Wednesday April 29 in a further relaxation of the COVID-19 lockdown.
The news was announced by Palma City Council today, which revealed that a total of 44 parks and green areas in the city would be opened up for children to enjoy.
Although all entrance points will be accessible, playgrounds will remain sealed off to the public.
With the aim of safeguarding the community against the virus, Emaya, the council-funded cleaning company, will disinfect all areas on a daily basis.
Furthermore, this Friday, four of the largest green spaces in the capital will reopen, including Bosque de Bellver, Parc de les Estacions, La Ribera and Parc de sa Riera.
In light of the announcement, the Councillor for Infrastructure and Accessibility, Angelica Pastor, called on residents to adhere to the two-metre social distancing rule to limit the risk of contagion.
“We ask for responsibility from citizens and that they follow the instructions laid down during this de-escalation stage.”

Pastor explained that the decision was taken so that children would have more room to exercise and play, in addition to ensuring that more space was provided to halt overcrowding.
The move follows the Council’s decision to reopen all of its beaches to coincide with the lifting of the coronavirus restrictions.
