A PLACA
A placa está colocada no início do Passeio das Margens do Ave no lado da cidade. É uma placa de metal colocada num pedestal de pedra de granitica e onde se lê:

PASSEIO DAS MARGENS DO AVE
Parceria para a regeneração Urbana-PRU

Inaugurado por sua Excelência
O Presidente da república,
Prof. Dr. Aníbal Cavaco Silva
em 21 de Janeiro de 1012



O LOCAL
"Um agradável passeio pedonal e ciclável liga o Parque Urbano da Rabada ao coração da cidade. As margens do Rio Ave foram requalificadas ao longo de 1,4 km – extensão do percurso através do qual é possível passear, correr ou andar de bicicleta, tendo como cenário a agradável paisagem de Santo Tirso. Pretendeu-se simultaneamente intervir na frente ribeirinha do Ave e estabelecer uma ligação pedonal/ciclável entre a frente ribeirinha que se encontra mais próxima do centro da cidade de Santo Tirso e o Parque Urbano da Rabada. Este percurso pedonal e ciclável permite dar continuidade futura, na cidade, a uma rede de percursos pedonais e cicláveis que vão criar uma alternativa estruturada e com escala suficiente face ao modelo de mobilidade motorizada adotado pela grande maioria da população."

THE PLAQUE
The plaque is placed at the start of the pedestrian and cycling route in the city side. It's a metal plaque placed in a granite stone pedestal and it reads:

SIDEWALK OF THE MARGINS OF AVE
Partnership for Urban Regeneration-PRU

Inaugurated by His Excellency
The President of the Republic,
Prof. Dr. Aníbal Cavaco Silva
on January 21, 1012


THE LOCATION
"A pleasant pedestrian and cycling route connects the Urban Park of Rabada to the heart of the city. The banks of the Rio Ave were reclassified along 1.4 km - length of the course through which you can walk, run or ride a bike, against the backdrop of the pleasant scenery of Santo Tirso. It was intended to act simultaneously on the riverfront of the Ave river and establish a pedestrian / cycling link between the riverfront that is closer to the city center of Santo Tirso and the Rabada Urban Park. This allows pedestrian and cycling path to future continuity in the city, a network of pedestrian and bike paths that will create a structured and with sufficient scale compared to motorized mobility model adopted by most of the population alternative."
