In the newspaper, I saw that the residents of barri de Mar have made a demand to our mayor for more money to be invested in their neighbourhood. I do not claim that there is not any need for further improvements where they live, but consider that valid for most parts of the town. In fact, at least in one aspect, barri de Mar scores higher than the rest – they have the best children’s playgrounds.
Since our oldest son started to take gymnastics classes, we visit the north of the town every week and more than once have complained loudly about the lack of a decent area for a break around there. Not so any longer. The remodelling of Plaça de les Casernes has not only given us a nice place for a snack, but also a new favourite playground. I just hope that our children will not demand that we go there on weekends. The coast is more beautiful, after all.
