At the other side of the street Jurija Gagarina, in the direction to the Sava river, in the Block 44 (www.blok44.com) there is the sport- recreational center Aqua Park in construction. Mr Vladimir Jankovic, whose idea was this project and who is the future manager of this Park, says that this object would be opened in the summer 2007.
