The Society of Marjan revealed on Tuesday morning that the City of Split canceled the tender for an adrenaline park on Marjan, precisely in the Bene area, reports Dalmacija Danas on April 9, 2019. 

Soon after their announcement, the City of Split announced:

“After yesterday’s talks with the stakeholders of the Marjan Park Forest and representatives of the civil society under the leadership of the ‘Our Marjan’ initiative, in order to further harmonize all misunderstandings, the City of Split decided to temporarily annul the procurement procedure of the Adrenaline park for climbers planned in the area of Bene. The acquisition of the adrenaline park will take place after the reconciliation of the foreseen micro-location, which will also least intervene with the natural habitat of the Marjan Forest Park.

Please note that the City of Split remains committed to the fact that Marjan is a living room and the main recreational zone of all our citizens, as well as numerous climbers and children who are engaged in sports climbing, who are eagerly awaiting the first of such content in our city. According to the procurement plan of the project, the works of the construction of the adrenaline park will be carried out as soon as possible, following the pace of the rehabilitation of the Marjan forest from the bark beetle. 

The preservation and revitalization of our Marjan needs to remain our only goal, and we can only come to it through the joint and unified action of all stakeholders,” the City of Split said on Tuesday morning.

Recall, as part of the project “Marjan 2020 – a hill of the past, an oasis of the future”, last week, the City of Split initiated the public procurement procedure for the construction of setting up a demountable adrenaline park.

The location of the future adrenaline park would be located east of the bay of Bene, where it is easier set up more compatible content, such as paintball, picnic areas, and a bocce ball court. Marjan Forest Park does not currently feature an adrenaline park, although the program is fully compatible with the recreational character of the space, the City of Split said.

The goal was to make quality moves with minimal interventions in the natural heritage – putting the entire previously devastated infrastructure into the function of new growth, development, employment, as well as improving the overall sustainability and the biodiversity of the Marjan Forest Park.

The installation of the demountable adrenaline park was said to be in line with the project activities of the School of Multilingual Development and Sporting Facilities of Marjan.

The project would directly affect the increase in the number of visitors and tourists through targeted content, activities, products and infrastructure, and bring Marjan glory and recognizability in Croatia and the world as one of the main symbols of the City of Split, the City added. The estimated value of the works for the new adrenaline park is 554.800,00 kuna (without VAT).
