Romeo Romano Gardens project in Santa Venera: creating open and recreational spaces for families

A new regeneration project for Romeo Romano Garden in Santa Venera was announced by Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning Aaron Farrugia.    

The minister explained that this multi-million, multi-functional project will give back an open space in Santa Venera, a part of which is currently closed off to the public, addressing the need for a green lung in an urbanised locality.    

This project, the first phase of which will be implemented through an investment of €1 million, will consist of a children's play area using natural materials such as wood; a communal garden dedicated to gardening activities for children; and other maintenance work on the walls and historical features such as the ‘sienja’, the rainwater reservoir, and the 19th century canal irrigation system.     

Minister Farrugia explained how this project will improve the health and wellbeing of residents leading to a better quality of life as it will provide a safe and tranquil environment for Maltese families to enjoy. He explained that this project can serve as an example for similar projects which aim to minimise the use of material such as plastic and concrete by opting for wood materials as part of a new concept.     

WasteServ CEO Richard Bilocca said that GreenServ, which will be responsible for implementing this project, will ensure that all works are compatible with the site, respecting the gardens’ historical and cultural value whilst also respecting the environment.   

The second phase of this project will also involve the restoration of a historic building, which is currently abandoned, in order to serve as a kitchen garden similar to the one in San Anton. GreenServ will be implementing this project among various others with the purpose of improving people’s quality of life by adding a new level of greening in urban areas.
