Two athletic fields and playgrounds were completed in Tartu with the support of the participative budget
27 September / Two completely renovated athletic fields and playgrounds were opened in Tartu – the Annelinn athletic field and the calm traffic area promoting movement at the Kesklinna School.
Both sites are winning ideas from the City of Tartu’s 2018 participative budget.
A new athletic field, which will remain open to the public, was completed in Annelinn (Anne 65), between the Hansa School and the Descartes School. The asphalt covering of the ball courts underwent reconstruction, with a new polypropylene honeycomb shaped covering being installed in its place. In addition, five pieces of outdoor strength training equipment were installed at the athletic field.
The new athletic field and playground in the Kesklinna School’s calm traffic area (Kroonuaia 7a) will also remain open to the public. A tartan-covered multi-sport area has been built in the schoolyard, suitable for playing volleyball and badminton, with a labyrinth, a separate area for playing basketball, practicing throwing accuracy and the long jump, and playing Twister. The school’s calm traffic area also has a slackline trail with platforms, a training centre for strength training and push bike ramps. In addition there are sliding tubes built into the hill and a climbing area with a tartan ground covering.
The new playground and athletic field offers activities for children and youth of all ages.
Mayor Urmas Klaas hopes that the attractive sites will encourage children to head outdoors. ‘Both sites got their start from ideas submitted to the participative budget, which school families and the community have enthusiastically supported. I believe that they will also find extensive use not only by our students but also by children from the surrounding area and young people will be able to spend their free time there,' said the Mayor.
