Geocache Description:


MATA DA DOCA SÃO MIGUEL AÇORES

Na transição do Séc. XIX para o XX com avultada actividade em 1902, das barrocas e runas resultantes das explorações das “pedreiras da doca” o Engº Dinis Moreira da Mota projectou e impulsionou aquela que se destinava a ser a maior zona arborizada de Ponta Delgada; o “Parque da Alegria” como o seu criador admitiu chamar-lhe: Parque Engº Dinis da Mota” como oficialmente depois foi designado, “MATA DA DOCA”, como todos em Santa Clara lhe chamavam e como ficou popularmente conhecida. A frondosa e luxiriante “MATA DA DOCA” a partir de meados do Séc. XX foi sendo aos poucos mutilada. Primeiro na década de sessenta com a construção dos depósitos da POL-NATO, o que obrigou a destruir, talvez, o maior conjunto de araucárias da Europa. Depois já em democracia, foi o “Pepom”, que também ajudou a desvastar e descaracterizar parte substancial do local. Para finalmente, já nas décadas de 80/90, em consequência do prolongamento do aeroporto, que quase soterrou por completo toda aquela área, pouco faltar para todo aquele pulmão verde desaparecer por completo. De facto, da imensa área que constituia a “MATA DA DOCA” 220,900 m2 registou com detalhe Gil Mont’Alverne de Sequeira em 1905-,apenas sobrou o espaço que, depois da espectacular requalificação de que foi alvo se transformou no “Jardim Padre Fernando. in João Pacheco de Melo

In the transition from the nineteenth century to the twentieth century with copious activity in 1902, the baroque and runes arising from holdings of "quarry dock" Eng Dinis Moreira da Mota designed and boasted that it was intended to be the largest wooded area of Ponta Delgada , the "Park of Joy" as its creator admitted call it: Parque da Mota Dinis Eng "as was later officially designated "THE FOREST OF THE DOCK", as everyone called him in Santa Clara and as it became known popularly. The leafy and luxiriante " THE FOREST OF THE DOCK " from the mid-twentieth century was gradually mutilated. First in the sixties with the construction of the deposits of POL-NATO, which required the destruction, perhaps the largest collection of Araucaria Europe. Once back in democracy, was the "Pepom" which also helped devastated and mischaracterize substantial part of the site. To finally have the decades of 80/90, due to the extension of the airport, which almost completely buried throughout the area, little miss all that green lung disappear altogether. In fact, the vast area that constituted the " THE FOREST OF THE DOCK " 220.900 m2 noted with detail Mont'Alverne Gil de Sequeira in 1905 - only left the space after the spectacular redevelopment of which was the target became the "Father Fernando Garden.
