It also contains a play area for passing boys and girls, to which will be added later an automated toilet and a covered kiosk that can be used in social and cultural events. This project already started in 2016 with the construction of a pedestrian and cyclist route linking the Euscotrin station in the district of Herrera with Trentxerbe, to which was added in 2019 the construction of warehouses for grain storage.
