Citizens in Roquetas de Mar City Council have asked the Government team to promote this week the municipal greenhouse, the Botanical Park (known as Sun Garden), and the Aguadulce Municipal Park as tourist resources.
Daniel Zalalla, its councilor, stated that the three enclaves are attractive enough to be integrated into the tourism offer of the municipality.
The mayor stated that "these three places have a potential not being sufficiently exploited neither by visitors from outside nor the residents of Roquetas de Mar". They highlighted this uniqueness from the orange formation, which is home to the botanical park that has over 3,000 plants, shrubs, and groundcovers. It also includes the municipal park of Aguadulce which contains a large number trees and is located on the Charles III Avenue.
He also defended the openness of the municipal greenhouse to the public to take advantage of agrotourism interest and to show "the essence" of one of the major economic engines of the province and municipality. It was constructed in its day by workshops schools, with the intention of making it more tourist-friendly. Zalalla believes that a visit to the greenhouse can be extremely enriching, not only because of its economic activity but also because it has an environmentally and technological component. This is something we need to disclose in order to combat false myths.
The liberal formation in the case of the botanical garden has decried that it is closed during open hours to the public. This was confirmed by the mayor this week. He has requested explanations.
This is not the first protest by the opposition against the closure of this infrastructure. It was built with a grant from Board in the day, also for tourism purposes. However, its location and the fact that it is very rare are reasons why its fate is not known. Even for the rockers.
