Establishment of a Family-Run Eco-Adventure Park in Telekibánya
This project involves the construction of an eco-adventure park that develops the tourist infrastructure in the region, filling a niche in the regional tourist sector and improving the region's overall tourist potential.
The micro region where the park will be located is lacking attractive tourism activities and services, therefore the tourism season is limited to a couple of months per year. The area has great tourist potential with plenty of attractions, however the linked infrastructure is not sufficiently developed. The eco-adventure park can fill in that niche in the tourism sector and improve the region’s touristic potential by providing programs for various age groups.
The main objective of the project is to create an eco touristic park that is able to provide innovative, good quality and multi- functional touristic services to various type of visitors. By offering high standard touristic services, the park will attract more visitors to the region, therefore it will contribute to the economic development of the region.
The main activities undertaken by the project were: a) creation of a rowing-pond b) different facilities for adventure activities for children and adults c) touristic information house d) eco house built up by the lake that sleeps up to 10 in order to meet accommodation needs generated by the activity d) summer house with rest area e) nature trail with the region’s main vegetation/flora f) parking area and g) publicity for the activity.
Results & Benefits
The park can offer various activities to visitors in all seasons: open-air sport, recreational and hiking activities, ore and minerals exhibition, discovering the areas cultural heritage etc. By itself it can be a primary touristic attraction offering complex, high quality services.
The main challenge was the planning phase of the project, because the overall concept had to be worked out in details in such a manner that the park provides complex, complementary activities to various target groups. During the implementation phase, the main challenge was to solve how to adjust to geographic conditions of the land parcel and how to landscape it.
