CONCEPTION HISTORY

Parque da Matinha was founded by a Municipal Law (1.488/79.O) on 06/13/1979 while Silas Brasileiro was the mayor. He could foresee the area as a park for the Matinha community (a needy neighborhood in the city). It was only then that any interventions of this kind were made in the area: a gym and a small public health center were built inside the park for the entertainment of its visitors as well as a paved pathway that takes the visitors from the park's entrance located on Dr. Vicente Soares Street to a small artificially-built lake filled by a spring located in the middle of the park.
The park has since then been abandoned.

GOALS

To preserve, to reforest and to revitalize the park area through the new proposed uses;
To make a common space with enough infrastructure for the practice of sports, leisure and cultural activities viable for the community as a whole (all this, through partnerships and by respecting the environment, so that the park becomes, in a near future, an Autonomous Foundation able to manage its own destiny);
To transform the park into a propagator of educational, cultural and environmental preservation of the city – buildings with this purpose, such as six classrooms for ecological learning (from elementary to high school) will be built as well as a unity of environmental preservation that will join professionals involved in the matter, such as biologists, vets and the forest police;
In the cultural area, which is directly linked to education and citizenship formation, there will be a building of multiple uses for multimedia terminals, a movie theater as well as a space for theatrical and musical performances.
