HISTORY

Stretches 10 and 11 began to be built after the endorsement of the Special Plan of the Turia Gardens and respond to the original draft ideas. ThePalau de la Música integrates naturally here.

We find here an abundance of these trees: Corsican pine (Pinus nigra), red plum (Prunus cerasifera), privet (Ligustrum lucidum), bitter orange (Citrus aurantium), white mulberry (Morus alba), common cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), date palms (Phoenix dactylifera), Canary palms (Phoenix canariensis), olive (Olea europaea) and magnolias (Magnolia grandiflora). Bluefin eucalyptus (Eucalyptus ficifolia) specimens are maintained, existing at the edges before the performance.

Stretch 12 is a children area. We locate here a figure of the giant Gulliver, converted into slides for everybody’s use and enjoyment. It offers two giant chessboards, crazy golf courses and a skateboarding park as well.

THE ROUTE

Stretches 10 and 11 were designed and executed by the drafting team of the Special Plan of the Túria Gardens. In these sectionsthe layout is geometric, with regular arrangement and symmetry in its entirety. We emphasize the presence of the Palau de la Música, with a large pond allowing an unobstructed view of the entire building.

In Stretch 12 the previous geometric layout is maintained. Play areas occupy much of its surface. It should be pointed out the figure representing a sleepy Gulliver, by whose body, transformed into huge slides, everybody slides.
