Megapark along the Medellin riverMedellin MegaPark – Medellin is set to take on another enormous project. The city will be turning the Medellin river banks into a giant park that spans more than 1,047 acres, from Sabanetta in the south to Bello in the north. “Without at doubt this will be one of the biggest and most transcendental projects for the present and the future of our city,” said Medellin mayor Aníbal Gaviria Correa. The project will commence on April 18th, 2013 with an international architecture and engineering contest. The contest winner will have their design selected to be used in the building of the MegaPark. This new MegaPark in Medellin will change the landscape, transportation routs, and lives of the inhabitants. Construction will take years, but I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
