RENOVATION OF HISTORICAL REHABILITATION PARK AND INCLUDED BUILDINGS
The municipality of Druskininkai seeks to revive the famous and particularly, during the last century popular, Rehabilitation park. This park is situated in the centre of the resort, a beautiful pine Ratnyčia on the 19ha coast of the river. The park's activities started in the early twentieth century, when after the first World War, a doctor E.Levicka established a therapeutic gymnastic base in this park. There was a place where people enjoyed solar, air and water procedures under the open sky. In 1952 when control of park was given to K.Dineika park was supplemented with: open basins, sunbaths, cascade baths, doorway walking paths, a pool of biologically active acupressure points, sumplimented by the pharmacy plant garden. A little later, a unique areohydro-ionotic pavilion was installed in which the air was ionized by falling water currents, while the ratio of positive and negative ions twice exceeded the rates of famous resorts, at the time,based in the Swiss and Russian. In 1969, the Rehabilitation Park visited between 3 and 4 thousand holidaymakers and tourists every day, while over 400 thousand procedures were performed here during the summer season. In the last two decades, the Health Park belonged to former Lithuanian trade unions, but after their rule, the park's condition became deplorable: the territory was flooded, unhandled and abandoned, the buildings were destroyed. Currently, the Rehabilitation Park is owned by the municipality of Druskininkai. The park area is included in the list of protected cultural heritage objects.
A contract on the funding of the Rehabilitation Park project was signed in 2013. The renovation process of the park is divided into four stages. Currently works are already underway under projects “Restoration of Untangible Old Traditions in the Historical Rehabilitation Park” and “Installation of Extraordinary Active Rerest Area in the Historical Health Park”. The projects are financed in 2007-2013 by Support from the European Union Structural Funds and the Druskininkai Municipality funds. The total value of the projects amounts to around 2.3 million euros.
Up to now, about 70 percent of the park has been renovated: reconstructed walking paths, cascade baths, ionization pavilion, acupressure swimming pool, installed terrace, public toilet, drinkers, children's game sites, outside mechanic simulators, shores and slopes of the Ratnyčia River. In other steps, it is envisaged to install amphitheatre, a bridge over the Ratnyčėlė and continue to reconstruct the walking paths.
These public investment in the unique, superior past park, for tourists of particular interest in the provision of services will provide an essential boost for the revival of the historic Rehabilitation Park.
