The City installs an elevator in the entrance of Parque Maritimo

Yesterday morning the elevator installed in the Marine Park of Santa Cruz de Tenerife started operations. It allows users access from the parking area to the pools. The project is part of the Plan of Accessibility for people with reduced mobility.

The Marine Park so far provides access by Castillo Negro for people with mobility problems, but not through the main entrance.

Made of aluminium railings and glass sides to minimize the visual impact of the elevator, this facility, guarantees park access via the front entrance and cost 48,000 Euros.

Improved accessibility

This installation is part of the process of continuous improvement in Santa Cruz that has led to more than 445,000 Euros in capital investment being made by the city.

Specifically, in terms of accessibility, they have adapted and improved 13 facilities since 2014, worth 69,049 Euros. In addition, the elevator that started operating yesterday, there is a water chair, a lifting and hydraulic crane adapted for entry to the pools. The entrances to the park and pools have railings and fencing, and are equipped with alarms.

They have also acquired three vehicles for the disabled to visit the Palmetum.
