'Torrent de Jueus' is an old river located in the municipality of Lluc Major, which flows into s'Arenal. It has 10km of route with no interruptions or important bottlenecks and only the highway crosses his natural orographic course. S'Arenal is an area highly punished by tourism, which has appropriated the natural space of the river's basin, suffocating the territory and altering its section irregularly and without any intention. For this reason a beautiful place has become an abandoned place where people throw out what is no longer useful.

The proposed ideas are based on the recovery of the natural basin, giving it an urban park nature and promoting its use not only as an entertainment, but also a didactic way generating cultural and exhibition spaces, and creating paths for running or cycling. We believe that s'Arenal has been living looking to tourism and has forgotten about the quality of life of its residents. Proof of this is that they have an abandoned natural park crossing the city.
