It’s a dog’s life in Malaga


MALAGA CITY COUNCIL has finished its €54,517 dog park in Cortijo Alto after three months.

The works, which were carried out by Delta Ingenieria Infraestructuras y Servicios, were managed by the Municipal Management of Urbanism, in coordination with the district of Teatinos, the Environmental Sustainability area and with the agreement of the Neighborhood Association of Cortijo Alto

Councillor for the Environment, Raul Jimenez, and the spokesman of the Municipal Citizens Group, Juan Cassa, have visited the dog park, accompanied by the Councillor for the district of Teatinos, Teresa Porras.

The new site is located on a triangular plot measuring 4,500 square metres, located to the south of the A-357 road. Water supplies, irrigation and a new drainage system have all been installed, as well as new street furniture, signage and landscape gardening.

A new pavement and pedestrian crossings make the park user-friendly, while a gravelled access road improves accessibility for those in cars. For canine companions, waste bins and drinking fountains have been installed, as well as colourful tunnels for their play area.

The work has involved coordinating with the Department of Parks and Gardens, who contributed €18,150 to create the site and install a concreted access road, and new landscaping. The park now also benefits from a new irrigation system and planting scheme.
