| These works are part of the improvements to the facilities of the municipal sports center, which have a municipal budget of almost 976,000 euros | Work has already begun to renovate the artificial grass of the Onofre Fernández Verdú municipal soccer field in Las Torres de Cotillas, an area that was installed in 2008 and was already showing deficiencies.
With a budget of about 212,000 euros contributed by the municipal coffers, these tasks will involve the installation of a modern and state-of-the-art artificial grass system, certified in the laboratory according to the quality criteria of Fifa Quality and Une En 15 330-1. "The old grass will be used to garden flowerbeds in the sports center itself," says the Councilor for Health and Sports, Verónica Morcillo De la Torre, who indicates that these works will last until mid-August. This field is also seeing improved performance with works already underway to build a changing room-stand with 342'24 m2 for changing rooms -three for athletes and two for referees-, warehouses and public toilets.
In addition, a total of 267'3 m2 will be allocated to a covered stand with 304 seats, and 278'16 m2 for a low-tier area, where warehouses and facilities rooms will be located.
"We have been without these facilities for years and it is urgent to provide a quality service to the thousands of people who use these facilities each year," says Mayor Torreño, Joaquín Vela Fernández. News These tasks are part of the project to improve the facilities of the municipal sports center, which has a municipal investment of almost 976,000 euros and which will also entail the construction of a perimeter-closed hockey rink, whose playing field will have a surface area of ??44x22 meters.
"This sport is booming in our municipality, especially thanks to the work carried out by the Roller Queen club among the youngest," says the mayor of the area. Archery is another discipline with deep roots in Las Torres de Cotillas, for which its athletes will have a new field in which they will be able to shoot a distance of up to 90 meters thanks to its wide dimensions (106 meters long by 15 meters).
The culmination of this project is the creation of a 900.00 m2 street workout-calisthenics park.
"These are sports that combine basic physical exercises in which the own weight is used with acrobatic exercises, characteristics that make it very attractive for young people," reports the mayor. "All the new facilities will be adapted for people with reduced mobility and will have their own lighting, and to provide them with an electrical supply, the installation of solar panels has also been planned," says the Councilor for Urban Planning, Francisco Fernández Baño, who points out that will build a new perimeter wall to "unify the enclosure of the sports complex in its entirety".
