El Parque Ruiz Hidalgo de Murcia (1908-1985). Una ocupación pionera de la ribera de un río en España

Francisco Medina Martínez, Jesús Ochoa Rego


The city of Murcia had a park on the river side of Rio Segura from 1908 to 1955. This huge garden was built next to the landmarks of the city and it represented 6% of green space over the total city area. It was promoted by Ricardo Codorníu and its main purpose was to show people the different plant species and to get the necessary information to adapt these plants to possibly forest uses. The Park was the center of countless city social activities and it was abandoned by the city authorities who led to its completely destruction. The Garden is studied through the Guide to the Park written by Codorníu. This Guide was the first document of this nature published in Spain.
