The city began to beautify the Kopli cemetery park. In the course of the works, it is planned to renew the path, passing through the whole park, to repair the fountain, to install new benches and garbage cans, and to put the children's playground in order.
"Kopli Park is a popular place among locals for quiet rest and walks. The last time large-scale works on improvement were conducted here more than ten years ago. During the current works on the renovation of the park, new comfortable benches and capacious garbage cans will be installed. And the park supervisors will look after the order in the park, which the district government hired this spring," - said Raymond Kalyulaid, elder of Pohja-Tallinn.
Work on the renovation of the Kopli cemetery park is being carried out in parallel with the reconstruction of the park and the beach in Stromke.
In addition to installing new benches and garbage cans, it is planned to put in order the path that runs through the entire park, as well as the stairways adjacent to it. The fountain-monument, which is dedicated to the memory of all people buried in the park and is located in the center of the park, will also be repaired,.
The renovation will not ignore the park fence, in addition, new information stands will be installed in the park. The main work is planned to be completed by the end of July. Children's playground will be put in order by September.
The Kopli cemetery, founded in 1774, is of great cultural and historical significance, as many outstanding public figures, cultural figures, artists, scholars, gentlemen of the Cross of Freedom and other people who have made a significant contribution to the formation of Estonian national culture, have found the last shelter here. In 1951, the cemetery was liquidated, and the park was set up on its place.
