There is not a single sports facility in the infrastructure of this area where people can engage, not only in sports, but also just stay, be. Plus, the sports box was in disrepair. And in order to refine all this, we decided to create this universal sports ground for residents of the district and schoolchildren. <…> It is open from 7 am to 8 pm. We are landscaping, we are watching the safety, therefore we have a priority: when children have physical education lessons, we do there
