The Pannon Park which is being built on the new 5-hectare area of the Budapest Zoo is expected to open its doors to visitors in 2021. A number of mature and large trees were transplanted to clear the construction site during the preparation phase of the project. Some of the trees were planted directly in their new location and were also planted in heeling-in ground.
The central building of the Pannon Park, the Biodome, received some trees from the heeling-in to provide outdoor greenery. For the purposes of nature conservation, it was important to the operators to reuse the existing trees because, among others, the largest marine aquarium in Central Europe is being built here with a capacity of 2.5 million litres of water, thousands of fish, sharks and rays.
