Obyvatelé městké části Bohnice se postavili proti plánům radnice, rose to defend the regional forest from a potential building on the territory.
In terms of the project, a part of the forest will be turned into a recreational leisure center with a 9-level observation turret and all the supporting infrastructure including parking and restaurant.
The regional community beware that the cut-down forest territory will be used for residential construction and deprive the natives of the ability to enjoy the peacefulness of the place. The activists demonstrated their protest by leading an internet campaign and spreading leaflets in order to call people for signature collection.
Although the owners of the parkside consider the project as ‘a complimentary site for the zoo and botanical garden’, the dates of project execution and the realization itself are still under question.
The deciduous forest is situated alongside the Prague botanical garden and spreads over 14,5 km2.
