Ecological Park Reforestation

Members from the Funchal Socialist Party (PS), as part of their ‘Pelo Funchal’ initiative, recently visited the Funchal Ecological Park to assess the reforestation work undertaken after the 2016 fires, and to inspect the repairs to and the creation of new walking and mountain bike routes.

Over 280 thousand trees have been planted in the Ecological Park since the fires destroyed massive tracts of parkland in the summer of 2016.  During his visit, Council President, Paulo Bruno Ferreira,  highlighted the “excellent work” that has been done in this particular area in terms of both enjoyment and sustainability.

One of the other improvements highlighted by the Council President, who was accompanied by fellow council members, were the repairs to and creation of walking and mountain biking routes, which emerged as part of a policy to boost interest in the Ecological Park, providing a strong attraction for both Madeirans and visitors to the island.

The PS “Pelo Funchal” initiative started this week and covers the ten parishes in the municipality, with the aim of meeting the needs of its residents and fostering a close relationship with citizens.
