The Lebyazhye park was visited today by Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov and Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin. They inspected the results of eco- rehabilitation system of lakes and land improvement.
The park was restored thanks to the efforts of Kazanorgsintez PJSC and TAIF Group. As part of the project, a large-scale eco-rehabilitation of the Lebyazhye lake cascade was carried out. The drying- up Maloe Lebyazhye lake was cleaned up, while two previously lost lakes have been recreated there. A special three-layer screen was placed at the bottom of the two lakes to prevent water from going down.
A pumping station was installed to fill the lakes with water.
Rustam Minnikhanov was informed that special plants will be planted in reservoirs for natural water purification.
Then the participants of the inspection moved to the boats. Tatarstan President was told that the territory of Lebyazhye is a favorite recreation place of citizens. In summer, the lakes become the center of beach recreation. The Sukhoe Lebyazhye lake becomes a festival site with its own activities. Pedestrian networks, entrance zones, benches and playgrounds have been set up, as well as lighting, Tatarstan President’s Press Office reports.
The main part of the park will function as an urban forest with a minimal impact on the environment. A particularly valuable area with many rare species of plants will become a natural reserve park, while eco tracks and additional bridges will connect the lake system. The park improvement works will continue.
