Moscow Zaryadye Park for three days of work missed 10 thousand plants. About it to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” said the head of Department of gardening and environmental work of the Park Igor Sharafutdinov.
He noted that pressure on the Park significantly exceeded the design calculations. “Visitors trampled plants and lawns, especially in the area of the Northern landscape. It destroyed almost 30 percent of green cover,” said Safiullin.
“Imagine, dig the plants, hiding them in your bag and go. All greens have not yet taken root, it has only recently landed, so from the ground quickly pull the hands,” he added. Safiullin pointed out that it is impossible to prevent because the flow of visitors is so great that to follow all it is impossible even with the help of video cameras.
According to him, to replace the Park will purchase about 10 thousand new plants. Also in the “charge” established signs “On lawns not to walk”, and on the loudspeaker asking visitors not to destroy the Park.
On 11 September it became known that vandals damaged in “charge” design dome “glass crust”, the media centre and green spaces. As explained by the Director of design of civil projects of “Mosinzhproekt” Galina Gorbushina, the replacement of one glass triangle that make up the dome, are costly and require complicated technical work.
The Zaryadye Park on the site of the demolished hotel “Russia” was opened in celebration of the 870th anniversary of the capital on September 9. His first visitors were the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin, as well as journalists, schoolchildren, pupils of boarding schools and children from large families. For all other Park was opened on September 11.
