The new Budapest City Park sports center built on a 3.5-hectare plot of land near the intersection of Ajtósi Dürer Street and Dózsa György Street as part of the Liget Budapest programme is being handed over to the public on Thursday.

The outdoor sports center will be Budapest’s most versatile, catering to a dozen sports in a spruced-up green environment, the Városliget Zrt’s chief executive, Benedek Gyorgyevics, said.

The center contains an artificial grass football pitch with grandstand, a basketball arena, three multifunctional sports fields, a gym, a climbing wall and ping-pong tables, among other facilities that include full access for the disabled.

Most of the amenities are available to the public free of charge, he said.
