Company Zelenilo Podgorica LTD finished construction of the children's playground in the Podgorica’s settlement of Vrela Ribnicka. On the new playground, on the tartan base, park equipment has been installed: a double swing, a swing, and a slide with a tower. The space environment in the park has been improved with tree seedlings, and new park furniture has been installed. In order to increase children’s safety level, but also to preserve furniture, this playground is surrounded by a protective fence.

Funds for adaptation of the children’s park are provided through ROMACTED programme, a joint initiative of the European Commission and Council of Europe, implemented in the Western Balkans.

The representative of the Council of Europe, Alessandro Botta, pointed out on this occasion that this is one of the ways to respond to the current situation with the COVID19 virus.

This is a small contribution from the Council of Europe within the ROMACTED programme funded by the European Commission and implemented by the NGO Young Roma, which wants to respond to the crisis with COVID 19 among the Roma community in Montenegro: in addition to the distribution of hygiene and food packages, we wanted to contribute to the improvement of living conditions in Konik, starting with common areas intended for the youngest. We thank the Capital City of Podgorica for their cooperation and we hope that we will continue to help the Roma population in Podgorica and Montenegro, said Botta.
