A large section of the Romeo Romano Garden in Santa Venera has been restored and opened up for use for the public.
Adding around 4,000 square meters to the open space in the urban area, the section was previously inaccessible to the public. The restoration works formed part of the first phase of the restoration project being carried out by GreenServ.
At the inauguration, environment minister Miriam Dalli said that €1.7 million are being invested in the full regeneration of Romeo Romano Garden.
‘This project is another testimony to the government’s vision and its full commitment in creating more open spaces at the heart of our localities. We believe that such projects are improving quality of life in our localities, while offering families new spaces for relaxation and recreation close to their homes and workplace’ she said.
The project included a playground as well as two decking areas. The history of the garden will be sustained alongside the new refurbishment which will also see the planting of new trees.
The restoration of the old gardener’s house will be the second part of the project, WasteServ CEO Richard Bilocca explained.
