A new green area around the unfinished University Hospital in Blato should be built in three months

Mayor Milan Bandić visited the construction site of the University Hospital in Blato, where works on refurbishing the park area started yesterday.
“We have many plans for this space – Zagreb thermal baths, a hospice, and if we manage to find a way to work with the Government, which I hope we will, a children’s hospital. Until then, and we will have to wait a couple of years, this space will be spruced up so that citizens living in this part of the city can spend their free time here. In three months, this will be the new Bundek,” the Mayor said.
Igor Toljan, head of Zagreb Holding’s Zrinjevac subsidiary, added that there are plans to renovate 60 hectares of green spaces. The terrain was cleaned during phase one, a year and a half ago, and now the most important phase starts – soil preparation, adding soil amendments, planting lawn grass, and adding facilities, such as benches, tables, and barbecues.
The University Hospital is an unfinished project on a 25 thousand m2 area in Blato, near Arena Zagreb, which was built from 1982 until 1992, when the building stopped. The construction was funded out of citizens’ pay checks, who accepted to having 1.5% deducted from their monthly salaries so that the hospital could be built.
