For the people of Bansko, the protection of the vegetation and the landscape richness of their town is of paramount importance. This is one of the main reasons why several years ago the implementation of various projects and programs for the improvement and reconstruction of the vegetation of Bansko began.
The changes in landscaping began with the improvement of the park space in the city
In 2013, the Municipality of Bansko discussed and adopted a plan to improve the vegetation in the city park.
Landscaping experts inspected all the trees in the park, certified them and drew up a plan to remove the old trees that had ended their life cycle. In their place were planted new, young trees that are typical of the region.
The crowns of all the trees in the park of Bansko were carefully formed, the young trees were observed regularly and all necessary care was taken for their smooth growth.
Flower beds were formed in the park, some of the alleys underwent reconstruction and new benches were installed for the citizens and guests of the city.
Of course, along with all this, the Municipality of Bansko changed the lighting poles in the park and built new playgrounds, that’s why the park looks like a real European tourist park, which Bansko residents can be proud of and guests of the city enjoy visiting.

Attention was paid to the reconstruction of the existing urban landscaping
After a public discussion with the citizens of the town of Bansko, the municipal administration under the leadership of the mayor of the town – Ivan Kadev launched a program for reconstruction and improvement of the existing urban vegetation of Bansko.
Particular attention was paid to landscaping in the central part of the city and on the central street “Todor Alexandrov”.
As most of the trees on the main street were more than 60 years old and suffering from various diseases, local authorities have developed a program to renovate the existing urban landscaping.
Sick and rotten trees were replaced with new, young trees to fit into the city’s landscape. The bushes were pruned and beautifully shaped, in the gardens and recreation areas were planted different types of colorful flower zones with violets and other typical representatives of low-stemmed plants.
Today the central part of Bansko shines in a beautiful, new and very well maintained green dress. By the beginning of 2022, more than 150 new trees of American oak, birch and ash have been planted in the central part of the city.
