In the presence of several hundred young people from Novi Sad, the modern Coca-Cola Danube Eco Park was opened on the Sunny Quay on 17th November.
Built in accordance with high environmental standards, the park represents a unique space where citizens will be able to relax, but also to educate themselves about the protection of the Danube River basin, water resources and environmental protection. With solar LED lighting, the park includes a children’s plateau with seesaws and swings, a bench shaped to symbolise the flow of the Danube, as well as a corner for disposing of waste suitable for recycling.
“Thanks to the cooperation between the City of Novi Sad and the Coca-Cola system, another urban area has been secured alongside the Danube that will attract our youngest citizens, but also their parents. In this way, we want to encourage people to participate in physical activities and spend time in open nature, but also to awaken environmental awareness, because we must all work together in order to protect the environment. By working on the construction of eco-parks, Coca-Cola is showing its great social responsibility, and we invite other companies that operate in Novi Sad to follow their example” said Vladimir Stojković, member of the Novi Sad City Council responsible for utilities.
The park was gifted to the citizens of Novi Sad by Coca-Cola system in Serbia, as a continuation of support provided to date for the celebration of Danube Day, in cooperation with the City administration, NALED and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
