The project to turn an area of abandoned marshland in the Port of Andratx into a park is becoming an issue many of the residents in the Port feel passionate about and fully support. British resident James Hadley, who has lived in the port for 20 years said yesterday that he and many local people, both Spanish and foreign residents, back the park “whatever the cost and I know plenty of people who feel exactly the same.” Mr Hadley said that, apart from the small play area in front of the church “which is too close to the road and parents are always worried that their children will rush out into the street, there is nowhere safe for the children to play or the elderly to go for a stroll.” “The pavements are too narrow, you have to constantly nip from the pavement into the road, and the seafront is always full of people” unappealing for the port's elderly citizens. I and many others are glad that the moratorium has put a stop to building, there's no more room to build in the port as it is, but we do need a park. “We've also got our resident duck population of between 14 and 18 which folk in the Port are becoming increasingly fond of and they too need a safe place to live, but more importantly, what is the price of happiness for the old folk, it's time to put some money back into our environment...whatever the cost, we've all made money here over the years.”
