Social projects. GREEK PARK
The results of research carried out by Gefest showed the deplorable state of the slopes under Prymors’kyi Boulevard, in the area of the Vorontsovs’ka colonnade soil movements were detected. Therefore, it became necessary to begin the strengthening of slopes with a powerful belt of piles as soon as possible.
The art zone of the Greek park on the slopes of Prymors’kyi Boulevard opened after a large-scale reconstruction.
The solemn event was timed to the celebration of the 224th anniversary of Odesa, the 2nd of September 2018.
To prevent landslides on the slope, the builders drove about 700 piles into the ground and installed a strong retaining wall.
The Greek park is divided into conditional three parts: an open-air art zone, a children’s entertainment and a pleasure park.
The total area of the park is 33 908 square meters.
The total area of landscaping – 22 925.7 sq.m.
The territory has modern lighting and the necessary communications are held (drainage system, sewage system, irrigation system for green spaces, etc.).
Also, there are travel options for people with disabilities in the territory.
The art zone of the park owes its name to the creative idea of the authors of the project and architects. Going down from the main massive stairs, guests of the park will see copies of ancient Greek statues. The Fish Restaurant will also be restored.
The main attraction is the unique «Beginning of the beginning» fountain, created by Odesa sculptor Mikhail Reva. According to the author’s idea, this figure symbolizes the universe. The sculpture of the fountain consists of 150 separate parts that were assembled by hand.
The lighting project of the Greek Park in Odesa took the top place in the All-Ukrainian competition of urban planning and architecture Ukrainian Urban Awards – Competition of Ukrainian Urban Studies at 7th of June 2019.
