“Very good app”
Adnan Turan, who said that he visited the park and liked it very much, said, "Well done to those who contributed. It's a beautiful place. It is both a very good breathing space for the people living in the surrounding area and a very nice place for the employees in Moda Tekstil Confectioners' Complex to take a walk during lunch. It's also a great place for kids. Dr. Being named after Behçet Uz is an extremely meaningful example of fidelity. I really liked the emergency button application. It is a correct application. It is especially important for women and children. There may be those who are inconvenienced, those who cannot reach the phone. It is an extremely important service in terms of violence and health," he said.
Emphasizing that there is a Moda Tekstil Confectioners (MTK) Site right next to the recreation area and that there are many female employees, Gül Ersoy said, “Our park has been opened. We would like to thank our Izmir Metropolitan Municipality for bringing such a park to this region. MTK Site is a site where many women work due to the fact that the textile sector is dominant. For this reason, it is a great privilege to offer such an area especially for us during lunch breaks or breaks. I say privilege now because women in our society cannot travel alone in desolate areas. Unfortunately, there may be some harassment and violence. We were relieved when we learned that the security would be on duty 24 hours a day. The emergency button is also a huge plus. This is a huge area. Incredible reassurance for someone who wants to hike alone. This way, we will be able to move around more easily.”
