Third (second) time’s a Charm
The Pekre creek park project has a really long history. The municipality of Maribor has been dealing with this project for many years, but has not yet managed to complete it.
It’s an interesting fact that as early as 1999 a competition was announced for the park area, where we won, began negotiations with the municipality, made a few concepts, but in the end everything fell into the water.
Exactly 20 years later, in 2019, we won more or less the same competition in the same location again! This time, the local community is determined that with the help of the Municipality of Maribor they will finally get the park they have been promised for 20 years.
