March 18, 2021 at 5:00 PM

The development of Nagyrét in Hűvösvölgy continues: a thematic playground and an outdoor gym will be built on one of the most popular greens in Budapest by the end of April. The playground, designed by sculptors, will evoke the indigenous fauna and flora of the forest. Work will begin later this week.

Pilisi Parkerdő ZRT announced the development plans to the MTI on Thursday, stating that a thematic playground and outdoor gym would be added to the green, and unveiled to visitors in April.

The company began renewing Nagyrét in 2019 by creating a standard-sized handball pitch on the site of the burnt-down Nagyrét Café.

A consortium formed by Pilisi Parkerdő and the Hungarian Hiking Association will continue developing the area this year. Work began earlier this week.

Expanding the services offered on Nagyrét is also beneficial because an increasing number of people have looked to the outdoors for healthy recreation options during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The playground is being built on the site of earlier demolished buildings. Its installations have been designed by sculptors to fit harmoniously into their natural surroundings.

A slew of toys, including climbings ropes, swings and spring toys, will await children.

An outdoor gym will be added along the existing footpath. The outdoor gym will offer a total of 12 stations in an island-like layout.
