The gardeners of the Municipal Institute of Parks and Gardens who are providing essential services have photographed the arrival of spring in the city to show it to city residents.

With the arrival of spring, the parks and gardens are starting to turn green and the flowers are blooming. But, as the public cannot visit them, the gardeners who are doing the essential services have tried to capture what the city looks like in spring so it reaches every home.

Parks and Gardens is an essential city service and is therefore offering minimum services at each stage of the state of alarm. During the last few weeks more than 60 gardening professionals have been working on the city’s green spaces.

The main tasks they are carrying out are supervising the various green spaces, dealing with any emergencies that might arise in the parks and gardens and checking the sprinkler systems. Now they are reviewing the state of all those green spaces to prioritise the work that needs to be done so the public can start to visit them again.

And while doing that, they have tried to capture some of the best spring scenes from the city’s parks and gardens and share them with the public so they can enjoy spring, even if its on a screen.

Through the Urban Ecology Twitter account (@BCN_Ecologia) and under the hashtags #Naturadesdecasa and #DonemPasAlVerd, they will be sharing photographs ranging from the more exotic plans of the Mossèn Costa i Llobera Gardens to the beautiful green grass of Estació del Nord park, the ducks that bring life to the Parc de la Ciutadella lake, the flowering planters of Passeig de Gràcia or the pollinating insects that have come to the Viver dels Tres Pins nursery.
