With an investment of €200,000 an area of around 1,165m2 will be regenerated to provide better access to persons with disability while ensuring the efficient use of resources such as water and electricity.
This regeneration will see a building of a reservoir to serve as rainwater catchment, which will then be reused for the watering of plants and trees.
This project which will benefit the Ħal Safi community, was announced by the Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Sustainable Development together with the Director General of Parks Malta Adrian Attard, in the presence of representatives from the Ħal Safi Local Council.
As part of the investment, this project will offer an open space at the Ħal Safi community, as a place of recreation for residents. Parks Malta is ensuring a picnic area as well as a dog park – an area which will be equipped with furniture to provide a secured space for dog training.
“We are constantly announcing projects related to open spaces, as sustainability lies at the centre of our projects, as we are equipping this area with efficient systems and making them accessible for everyone. Together with Parks Malta, we look forward to continuing to work and provide more open spaces”, said Minister Dalli.
This investment will include the removal of invasive species and the planting of shrubs and indigenous trees.
“Parks Malta is committed to continue working with more local councils to provide more open spaces within the community. Now we look forward to seeing the public enjoy these open spaces”, said Adrian Attard.
Present for the project launch was Parks Malta Director General Adrian Attard and representatives from the Ħal Safi Local Council.
This regeneration will be completed in the coming months.
