Tirana Municipality will be equipped with new protected parks in Vaqarr area and near to Kashari Lake. The news was made public by the Mayor of Tirana, Erjon Veliaj. “Tirana city will have at least 5 natural parks which will be the ‘lungs’ of the city,” declared to the press the newly elected Mayor.
Only a few days after being sworn as the new Mayor of Tirana Municipality, the biggest municipality in Albania, Erjon Veliaj declared publicly that Tirana has opened war against pollution. In this respect, he encouraged cleaning companies which are currently contractors of Tirana Municipality to put more efforts in cleaning the city.
In order to have more natural and clean spaces for citizens, the Mayor declared the opening of two new natural protected parks in Kashar and Vaqarr areas. Tirana has only one natural protected park near to the Artificial Lake but the high number of inhabitants in the city needs more natural spaces, according to the Mayor.
