Join the Last Clean-up Action on the Turkish Tower in Split

By 23 September 2015

Official opening of the largest park in the city will be on October 4th

After more than 4 months of hard work from hundreds of volunteers and organisations from Split and surrounding areas, city's largest park Turska Kula (Or Turkish Tower) will be officially open for public on October 4th at 10 AM.

Everyone is invited, but before the fanfares and the opening party, one last clean-up action will take place this Saturday, September 26th.

The man behind this project, dr. Joško Kalilić commented on the final results of his clean-up efforts: „There is no longer any reason to be afraid of this park, and we have to say, its previous state did make it one of the most notorious locations in the city. This green oasis in the very heart of Split is a true gem, and the most important thing now is to make sure all our efforts were not in vain. It has to be maintained in the same state it is now, thanks to many hours, dedication and hard work of our volunteers. This will only be possible if the city administration comes to an agreement with the management of Parkovi i nasadi, it would be ideal if one of their employees could be stationed there permanently, or at least until the City Council decides on the future purpose of this park“.

Dr. Kalilić once again thanked all the people who contributed to such a drastic transformation of a park that was once one of the most notorious spots in Split, and invited the public to give them a hand once again, this Saturday during their final clean-up action before than grand opening on October 4th.
