We have completed all the shortcomings and we have carried out the renovation works. We here, without any commercial concern, wanted to create an alternative option to social life by visiting Pamukkale where our people have been away for years. We have brought our people to white heaven in a better quality with more affordable prices than before.
Our citizens and tourists enjoy the natural environment in the pool in the daytime and live music at nights during the summer. The satisfaction of our citizens also makes us happy.”

In the first stage, the application of cat houses started in the suitable parks in Kuşpınar, Zeytinköy, Bağbaşı, 15 May, Atalar, Mehmetçik, İstiklâl, Kınıklı, Topraklık, Kervansaray and Siteler neighborhoods.

Each container with a capacity of 2200 liters removes the visual pollution as it attracts attention with its environmental, aesthetic and modern urban furniture appearance. Underground containers; can be unloaded by elevating to ground level by means of a lift platform.
