Tiete River will get a huge park

The Tietê River will win a park of 75 km length, 33 sport places and recreation plus 230 km of bike pathways. The space will be built straight beside the river, between the east zone and the city of Salesópolis.

The government has already signed the
intention protocol with the mayors of the eight cities that will be involved to this project. Besides the capital, this Park called Várzeas do Tietê will cross Guarulhos, Itaquaquecetuba, Poá, Suzano, Mogi das Cruzes, Biritiba Mirim and Salesópolis. The delivery forecast is 2016.

The project is organized into three phases. In the first one, it'll be invested R$ 377 million, where 70% of the funding will come from the Banco Interamericano de Desenvolvimento. It includes the 25 km between Penha and Itaquaquecetuba and must be delivered in 2012.

The stretch of 8.5 kilometers of biking untill the Pimenta's suburb, in Guarulhos, should be open in January 2010.

The construction of the park, which has 3.8 million square meters, will cost R$ 1.7 billion. It should help to combat flooding and to reduce pollution of the city and also will be planted 63 thousand trees.
