Cundi Park and Cundi Social Facility Were Opened With A Conducted Ceremony
Cundi Park and Cundi Social Facility, which is located in the Fatih Küçük Ayasofya Neighborhood, were opened with a conducted ceremony. Fatih Mayor Hasan SUVER said in the opening: “Number of citizens benefiting from our social facilities in the recent year has reached up to 1.7 million.”
The area, which used to serve as an astro pitch in the Fatih Küçük Ayasofya Neighborhood previously, was transformed into Cundi Park and Cundi Social Facilities as being reorganized by the Parks and Gardens Directorate of the Fatih Municipality. The park and social facility, which is established on a 5 thousand 700 square meters, is 500 meters away from Sultanahmet Square. With the arrangement made on the square, the square has become a more functional place with the sitting and rest areas, children’s park, parking area, vegetable exhibition area and social facility. The decorative pool partaking in the middle of the park adds an aesthetic ambiance to the park visually. The opening of the park and social facility was realized with the participation of Fatih Mayor Hasan SUVER, Ak Party Fatih District President Orhan Narin, Deputy Mayors, councilors, mukhtars and citizens. The program, which started with the Quran recital, continued with prayer.
“Most of our people were not able to benefit from touristic and cultural destinations of Istanbul adequately.”
Fatih Mayor Hasan SUVER, who mentioned that citizens may enter into social and cultural relations with the services provided today, said “As we all know, Social Municipalism was started with our President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 1994, who was the Istanbul Mayor at that time. Most of our people were not able to benefit from touristic and cultural destinations of Istanbul adequately. This used to create disconnection between the city and townsmen. People were living in Istanbul, but couldn’t benefit from the beauties of Istanbul. This door opened at that time, and increasingly continued with AK Party. Today, Istanbul residents are able to experience the beauties of our city by means of social municipalism implementations, regardless of their social-economic levels. They can enter into social and cultural relations, and they can enjoy living in Istanbul.
“Number of citizens benefiting from our social facilities in the recent year has reached up to 1.7 million.”
Mayor SUVER, who mentioned that citizens are content with the services, used the expressions of: “Our municipality had one social facility when we took over the management as Fatih Municipality in 2004. Today, the number of our social facilities have reached up to 9. 2 more facilities are under way. Number of our social facilities will reach up to 11. They draw a great deal of attention. According to the statistics of the recent year, number of citizens benefiting from our social facilities has reached up to 1.7 million. Hopefully, this will increasingly continue. Because, our people want to live in social areas as much as they want to live at their homes.”
