The public park at the base of the Old City Walls on Pile will be locked and closed to the public in an aim to stop vandalism.
"The Pile Park will be locked in the night hours from September 9, in the winter from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am and in the summer months from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am. with the aim of protecting the public space and preventing the abuse of this extremely valuable area, at the very entrance to the old city centre,” commented the City of Dubrovnik in a statement.
A new door has been installed at the entrance to the park and in the evening this new gate will be locked.
Various children’s playground equipment has been broken in the park as well as benches and other equipment and as part of the “Respect the City” campaign the City of Dubrovnik have obviously had enough and have decided to solve the problem by locking down the park.
