The first smart park in Yerevan
Two new areas are now open for the people in Yerevan. Mayor of Yerevan Hayk Marutyan got acquainted with the conditions and possibilities of the new parks.
The park was full of benches, children’s games, a swimming pool and a public toilet. Lighting of the recreation area is provided by modern energy-saving lamps. The park is also adapted for people with disabilities, ramps are built in different parts of the park.
The park, built on the territory adjacent to the historical-archaeological museum-reserve “Erebuni”, is a gift from the Badalyan family on the occasion of the 2800th anniversary of Yerevan. By the way, this new park of 1 hectare is the first of its kind in Yerevan.
As part of the program, special attention was paid to the use of modern technologies: solar systems were installed in the park, providing lighting of the park day and night.
In addition, the recreation area is the first park in Yerevan, where new technological approaches and smart solutions are used.
In particular, the luminaires providing outdoor lighting of the park have automatic control and illuminate the area to the maximum only when there are visitors in the park.
Presenting the details of the program to the mayor of Yerevan, Vahe Badalyan noted that artificial pools, a public toilet, benches, playgrounds and monuments were built in the park. The park also has free Wi-Fi. It should be noted that there will be no commercial activity in this park.
Expressing gratitude to the Badalyan family for the initiative, Hayk Marutyan noted that similar modern approaches and solutions should be applied in other parts of Yerevan as well.
“This is the best way to show your love for Yerevan when you give such gifts to your city. I am convinced that the people of Yerevan will spend their time in this park with great pleasure. A lot of work has been done, and it is very pleasing that the park uses the latest technology and also uses solar energy. This is exactly what we should strive for in the future, all parks in Yerevan should be equipped with these technologies”, the mayor said.
