Over 260 playgrounds put up in Chisinau in recent years

The General Housing and Amenities Division built 267 playgrounds since 2019 until the end of 2023. About 160 lot improvement requests have been dealt with this year, said the Division’s head Ion Burdiumov, being quoted by IPN.

In some cases it is not possible to put up a standard playground in the place where citizens request and actions are taken to identify the optimal solution. “For 2024, we are working on about 160 requests to install playgrounds and technical problems are encountered in the case of half of the remaining ones. For example, there are technical networks, district heating, gas, water, electrical networks in places where it would be convenient for citizens to have these playgrounds and it is thus not technically possible, but in these cases we go on site and find solutions. We do not install standard playgrounds, but fix separately play elements, figurines, which are agreed with the inhabitants and, respectively, we implement this solution,” stated Ion Burdiumov.

He noted that at the beginning of 2019, there were about 350 applications to put up playgrounds in Chisinau. Currently, the courtyards of blocks are covered with playgrounds in a proportion of 25%. Some of the playgrounds were repaired over the years, while others were dismantled and new playgrounds were built. 

Until 2020, the City Hall put up playgrounds where the surface was covered with river gravel. Later they switched over to rubber tiles that are easier to clean and are safer for children. Starting with 2022, the municipality decided to massively intervene in public spaces with full-size playgrounds. Playgrounds were built in the parks “Dendrariu”, “Valea Morilor”, “La Izvor”, “Dumitru Râșcanu”, in Sergei Lazo Square.

So far, the municipality has invested about 55 million lei in playgrounds.
