« inclusive Paralympic campus combining sports and nature. »
The vision of the Paralympic Sports Center provides a new attractive  centre in the neighborhood for both athletes and residents of the city. The Sports Centre is designed as a park for leisure and sports, specially adapted for people with reduced mobility. The concept of this offer is based on the linear public strip open space extending along the existing Bisumuiza ditch, which provides direct connections to all sports facilities and sports fields. Sports facilities and fields are compact, creating abbreviated distances between them. This public outdoor space is designed for various sports activities and events.
