    1. Improved provision of local cultural and social events.

      Among the listed aspects of regeneration, the degree of involvement of the local community has been improved. The activities, which helped to improve these aspects were discussions with locals about the future state and functions of the playground and locals also helped to realize some of the phases of the regeneration. As the project has only one aim with quite small budget, the other aspects of provision of local cultural and social events have not been significantly improved.

    2. Improved involvement of the local community in events organized in its quarter.

      Within the mentioned aspects, the examples of improvements are in involvement of the local community within both preparation and implementation of the initiative. These improvements were achieved by the following issues: planning the function and appearance of the plaground, helping in realization of several phases of the implementation, active use of the area after completion. Contrarily (and in accordance with aims of the initiative), less or none improvements have been done in the field of social inclusion via community centres or changes in NGO number and changes in decision making process.

    3. Identified new functions for structures from the era of socialism in 1945 - 1989).

      The very concrete aim of the initiative did not enable to regenerate the area in a complex manner, which would increase the functional structure of the area and significantly change its appearance. Thus, there are not new services, neither changes of functions of the area, and also the appearance of the surrounding buildings did not change. The only importance change in this respect was the improvement of place for social learning and inclusion as the playground (but not the community centre).


    Aim of the project was revitalization and reconstruction of the playground in order to provide the facility to both children in the kindergarten and in the surrounding. The project was solved in cooperation with parents of local children.
