New Recreation Area in the Center of Yerevan

A new skate park will be built near Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral, inside the Circular Park, also known as the Youth park. Thus, the Circular Park and its surroundings will revive.

For the implementation of this project, Mayor of the capital Hayk Marutyan recently signed a donor agreement with the President of the Union of Armenians in Ukraine Vilen Shatvoryan. «When we hear from our homeland, we do our best to help. Relations with Armenia give us strength and energy, and therefore, we do our best to maintain that link», - said the President of the Union of Armenians in Ukraine Vilen Shatvoryan. According to the plan, the construction of the skate park will begin in the coming months in a public area of 5044 sq.m. The project consists of two phases. The first phase is scheduled on June 30. For that period of time the relief slope of the southern part of the playground will be transformed into an amphitheater, directed to the playground. It is designed to build a skate rental, first-aid post, to refresh the green spaces. The area will be equipped with stylish solar-powered fans and general perimeter lighting using LED system. During the second phase of the project the existing green zone of the eastern part will be renovated with the help of unique plant landscapes and an observation deck. The problem of public lavatories in the park will also be solved, for the construction of which there will be a separate project.

It is planned to finish the construction completely by August 2020, which means that already this year the skate park will open its doors to our fellow citizens. «We came to a wonderful decision that this project will first of all bring happiness to our youth. This is how the idea was born to build a long-awaited and much-needed skate park in the capital. It is not only sport, it is also culture, a place of leisure, where young people will play sports and communicate with each other. It is important for our city. And this is only the beginning …», noted the mayor of Yerevan.
