The Istanbul Municipality on May 17 shared images of a footbridge connecting the Gezi Park in Taksim and the Democracy Park in Maçka, which is planned to be completed by the end of June.
The ecological footbridge will be home to wild plants and natural meadow species with grass turfed with earth fill, according to the municipality.
The landscape of the 32-meter bridge will also include common birch, lime tree, sweetgum as well as kniphofia, lavender and Gaura, it said.
Gezi Park came into prominence in 2013 when country-wide protests erupted in an effort to stop bulldozers from razing the park to build a shopping mall. Unrest quickly spread across the country in a revolt against the disproportionate use of police force during the demonstrations. Eight people were killed during the unrest.
