Greek Park: moving from the stage of construction to the installation of the fountain and landscaping. Picture story

Gennadiy Trukhanov: Today we are not just talking about improvement, but about saving our Odessa sights. I am grateful to the Greek Diaspora, which took responsibility for improvement of the Greek Park

On July 13, 2018 the Mayor of Odessa Gennadiy Trukhanov held a working meeting and inspected the progress of ongoing works on the Greek Park improvement. The park is a gift of the Greek Diaspora to the residents of Odessa, and its improvement is carried out with assistance of the city's municipal services.

To date, the strengthening of the slopes has been completed and engineering utilities have been laid. In addition, the foundation for the fountain is being prepared. The fountain is the central element of the future park, which will be viewed from Potemkin Stairs. For today, the casting in the bronze of the fountain sculpture continues, its installation is planned for the end of August.

According to curator of the project, Odessa sculptor Mikhail Reva, there are also identified 4 sculptures that will be located in the park - a copy of the sculpture of Poseidon, exhibited at the Athens National Archaeological Museum, as well as three copies of the statues of the famous Acropolis museum.

The works on arrangement of the stairs of the park continue. There are almost completed works on setting small staircases between terraces. The facing of the central staircase between the staircases from Primorsky Boulevard was started.

Descent from the Vorontsov Palace is ready and faced with granite, there is already installed an elevator shaft, and are being erected the facade systems of the museum located under the stairs. The arrangement of the monolith of descent from the monument of Duke de Richelieu to the upper terrace of the park is being carried out.

"We have comprehensively worked on the landscaping along the Primorsky Boulevard. The works have been started in a timely manner: surveys of the slopes showed that they were in the active phase of the movement. And today we are talking not just about improving the park, but about saving Odessa sights - Primorsky Boulevard, Potemkin Stairs and the Vorontsov Complex. I am grateful for the huge contribution of the Greek Diaspora to this work" said Gennadiy Trukhanov.

Creation of the Greek Park takes place in three stages: the first - improvement of the central part, the second - improvement of the territory near the Vorontsov colonnade and the third - reconstruction of the building of the former fish restaurant.
