The Alzira River Walk, which surrounds the Xúquer River on its right bank, is located between the Pont de Ferro and the Jorge Martínez Aspar Sports City. It was inaugurated on March 28, 2015.
This work served to restore and condition the right bank of the Júcar River, recovering its natural state, the green infrastructure, the landscape and making it accessible. In this space we find a stone staircase that leads directly to the river area and that connects the River Walk, below the Pont de Ferro, with the José Pellicer Bridge and gives the possibility of accessing the boardwalk area. There is also a wooden railing that delimits the walk.
In its surroundings there is a monolith, carved in marble and standing 4.39 meters high, which commemorates the restoration and refurbishment of the river walk along the Xúquer River.
On July 25, 2018, the Plenary of the Alzira City Council approved naming this Walk. As of this date, the walk bears the name of the benefactress PASSEIG DE MATILDE GIMENO.
Matilde Gimeno Castillo (1889-1970), in the field of action and social aid, helped needy women and also poor children. She created the Cozy Home for Children and Women in the Alquerieta neighborhood in 1941.
