Basket Park

This is an area where you can play basketball outdoors. It is next to the Prince of Asturias Pavilion, on Avenida de Los Pinos.
If you look, there are baskets that are three, I suppose it is to practice shooting, because I do not think you can play a game.
Another thing, colored roof area, is it really useful?

Carthaginians And Romans. Cartagineses Y Romanos.

During the second half of September in Cartagena is the feast of Carthaginians and Romans.
Cartagena was founded about the year 227 B. C. by Carthaginian general Hasdrubal. The Carthaginian presence in it would be fleeting because in 209 B.C., during the Second Punic War was conquered by the Roman Scipio.
This latter is what is commemorated during the festival of Carthaginians and Romans. Here you can view some videos.
The picture is really bad, I took from a local newspaper.

Rental Bikes

In March I published a similar picture, but the bicycle parking was unfinished. Now it already has all its colours, although the image is in another part of Murcia, Avenida de Los Pinos.
This rental system has been so successful, and there are no bicycles for all the requests (and some that has been stolen).

In this library you can borrow books, music, movies.

In the old artillery barracks, is this playground. In the picture there is no child (I took the photo at the right time), but usually this is a playground full of kids.
I've been reading that this type of playground can also be called TOT LOT. I do not know which is more correct to use for the image.
