Parc dels Estanys
An urban park of 150,000 m2 of attractive civic, tourist and natural space, inaugurated in October 2012,
where educational visits go hand-in-hand with biological diversity -the water cycle,
vegetation and migration of birds - and which has brought back the original environment and habitats of the area.
From 2014 it has held two annual temporary exhibitions of large format sculpture, this year by Bonaventura Ansón and Jaume Roser.
Previously, Emili Armengol, Alberto Gómez Ascaso, Jaume Roser and Medina-Campeny have exhibited here; and each one of them has left,
as a permanent reminder, a work installed in the park.
Biblioteca Mercè Rodoreda
The Mercè Rodoreda municipal public library has two floors and a surface area of 500 m2 adapted to provide access to the public with reduced mobility.
The first floor houses the usual reference and lending services and periodicals.
On the second floor are various other services: work, study and computer rooms.
The premises holds a collection of 22,000 books and a newspaper archive of 80 publications.
Throughout the year, it carries out an extensive participation programme, which consolidates the premises as a cultural space,
going beyond reading, studying and the enjoyment of audiovisual and computerised material.
Throughout the town there are dozens of public parks with benches and trees,
and with a wide range of play facilities for children. Beyond the more classic swings,
slides and sandpits you also can discover some surprising elements, always surrounded by security fences and with soft flooring.
Also in various points along the seafront promenade in Platja d’Aro there are original proposals that test the sensory abilities of the visitors.
And on the sands of the Platja Gran you will find various sets of large-scale games.
