Cluj metropolitan area creates a favourable context for Jucu rural area offering proximity services and a chain of cultural and entertainment facilities located along Someş River creating opportunities for cultural and economic development benefiting from the local rural context and urban areas nearby. This context has created the opportunity for proposing the foundation of the Training and Recreation Centre of Jucu by the County Council. The project comes as an addition to sports amenities in the city and as a complementary facility for the international stadium “Ion Moina” - Cluj Arena. This sports facility becomes virtually a permanent training centre both nationally and internationally, a competitive Olympic centre and also a recreational facility open to the public. The great range of internal functions by the wide range and versatility of the spaces and categories of public uses makes this investment to be attractive for achieving public-private partnership with multiple benefits for both parties. The complex is developed on 5 ha area and is composed of: 120 hotel beds, a swimming centre with facilities for water polo, swimming and jumping, restaurant, two multi-sport competitions play courts, four outdoor multi-sport playgrounds, four tennis courts and a football terrain with the 6 athletic tracks, all designed for international level. By achieving such sports and entertainment facilities, the investment builds a growth pole in rural areas through the usage of local workforce, attracts additional services in the area, development of transport infrastructure, bringing Jucu commune closer to the urbanised area allowing the development of a future sub-urban pole within the metropolitan area of Cluj-Napoca.
