Tom, that massive grey area is a combination of a sports play area, see the floodlights, and the long known água espelhada which is a downgrade from the lake, look for the area of drains and water fountain jets.

Orada Girl and I walked the area today, it's nice to see building of residences underway and I believe it will become a nice area to compliment west Albufeira, it was also nice to see the park gardens are being maintained.

Some pictures taken on Monday 7th. Some progress can be seen on the small building plot. I wonder how the estate agents will describe it? "Surrounded by a rubble strewn wasteland and close to a massive area of grey paving that serves no apparent purpose, this concrete block of no charm...




Between the main road and the Orada apartments, several very des. res. are under construction.







The playground and the park remain locked and out of bounds.

There were a couple of blokes pottering about on the building site where the crane sits. Not exactly a hive of activity! The rest of the area is still basically a wasteland.

Shame about the play area. All finished but fenced off and possibly will never be used.

A crane is still on one of the plots but I saw little evidence of any actual work taking place. The area is still very bleak and windswept.

The plot being developed by RCM & Filhos, which is fenced off at the far end near to the road to the fish restaurant has had a static crane elected last week.  It looks the same one that was used in the Finisterra developement. No signs of it being put to good use yet though.

Excellent work, thanks. Great that you were able to get inside the park area. It has always been behind locked gates for me. It does not look like the plans from all those years ago. Now for something to be built!

As promised I have copied a video link to my walk around the new phase 2 development, it will be interesting to see where the habitation is going as it doesn't look like the original plans.

Still no sign of anyone actually building anything.

Some material has been dumped here and there but the weeds are taking over in many places.

The little park is a mystery as it is still locked and barred with no-one able to use it. The nicely restored wells are a pleasant feature. Given the continuing drought, maybe they have will have start drawing water again. That strange little layby I pictured a while back is now a bus stop. The few remaining buses via Vale de Parra to Armação de Pêra, Lagoa and Portimão stop there. It's opppsite the fruit and veg stand.

Floodights have appeared around the large paved area.


I didn't see any building work proceeding.

Some limited signs of building activity. Same crowd that built the Finisterre block by the old cemetery.

Transformer or junction, it's been left behind like all the other surplus building material. Can't be worth anything or surely someone would have nicked it by now.

On the other side of the wall, inside the marina area, is an old portable generator and more left overs from the construction work, which looks very untidy to say the least.

Old Livestock Market, yes the arch gateway and the gatehouses at the ends have been rebuilt except for the roofs. They have had new decorative mouldings applied to restore their former glory. I guess they are still waiting for one on order for the top of the arch, as this has been left unpainted.
