This 10,000-square-metre park is once again crowded with families, workers and students after being returned to the city thanks to the redevelopment and enhancement work carried out in 2019. A green area has been enriched with a fitness area - equipped with outdoor fitness machines - a play area with several carousels that are also accessible to children with disabilities, a dog area and a new meeting space with benches and tables under a pergola that can be used in all seasons. In the centre of the park there is also a large synthetic grass five-a-side football pitch.
