Glashütte: New fitness area for young and old
Work on the multigenerational square in Schlottwitz is on schedule. The council hopes that everything can be finished ahead of time.
The people of Schlottwitz are following with interest what is happening in the future multigenerational square that is currently being built in the center of the city. Work is progressing well here. The administration is very satisfied with the result so far, explains Mayor Sven Gleißberg (independent) when asked by Sächsische.de.
The beach volleyball court and the multi-purpose court are ready. The playground equipment is already there and is currently being pinned to the ground. Now we continue through the area of the future playground. In the coming weeks, the soccer goals with basketball hoops for the multipurpose court will be delivered and assembled. Sandboxes are also being completed. A trampoline and ping-pong table will also be installed, says Gleißberg.
“So there’s still a bit of work to do,” he explains. But one trusts that the outstanding work will also be successful. So far, the cooperation with commissioned companies and participating associations has gone very well. Gleißberg would like to take this opportunity to say thank you. “That’s how fun it is!”
The city council hopes that the works of the multigenerational square can be finished in August/September. After that, trees will be planted. That could last until October. The official end of construction according to the contract is October 31. “Completion is therefore within reach and the many curious and excited children will soon be able to play, romp and discover on a really cool site,” says Gleißberg.
It is not yet clear when the site will officially open. Just this: “We don’t want children and parents to wait unnecessarily,” says Gleißberg.
The cost development is not so great. Glashütte will spend around €450,000 on the planning and construction of the multigenerational square. From today’s perspective, the city will exceed its long-anticipated budget by about 13 percent. However, Glashütte is not fully financing the new venue. There is financing from the EU Leader program for an amount of about 260,000 euros. The city of Glashütte will contribute around 190,000 euros.
