Discover the park project that will install an artificial beach in Pavuna

With more than 130 thousand residents, the Pavuna neighborhood, in the North Zone of Rio, will gain a park with sports courts, kiosks, social areas and even an artificial beach.

Rio City Hall began, this Sunday (30), works on the Carioca Pavuna Park, which will be built on Rua Marechal Guilherme, close to Morro do Chapadão, in Pavuna, North Zone of Rio. The region is one of the most deprived in the city.

With approximately 17 thousand square meters and an investment of approximately R$ 12 million, the space will offer sports, leisure and children's recreation activities, encouraging integration and social interaction among the population. The works are expected to be completed by June 2024.

The project envisages the creation of a large green space on site, with a multi-sports court, basketball court and sand court, kiosks and a common area with street furniture and games tables. An artificial beach will also be installed next to a wet square, a Senior Citizens Academy (ATI) and a children's playground. The space will also have a skate park.

The installation of an illuminated water tower, almost 22 meters high, is also planned. According to the city hall, the entire land will be landscaped, with flowerbeds of shrub vegetation and planting of trees of different species native to the Atlantic Forest, palm trees, a vegetable garden and ground covers.

Currently, the land on Rua Marechal Guilherme is abandoned and is used improvisedly by residents for football games.

“People will no longer need to go to the beach, there will be a private beach in Pavuna”, said the president of Fundação Parques e Jardins, Julio Villas Boas.
