Santa Luċija is set to benefit from a regeneration project which will see €500,000 invested to improve the village’s gardens, Sustainable Development Minister Miriam Dalli has announced.
This project, which will be located at the Serenity Garden and Ġnien l-Iskultura, will take place in collaboration between Parks Malta and the Santa Luċija Local Council in the hopes of giving a new lease to the gardens for the benefit of the community.
The inspiration of the project stems from the Chinese traditional practice of feng shui. Feng shui seeks to use energy forces to harmonise individuals with their surrounding environment.
The park’s pathways leading from the top and the bottom will be joined together in order to showcase the life cycle, consisting of birth, youth, middle age, and elderly age.
In order to connect humans with nature and to create overall positive energy, the architectural and playground structure will be designed to reflect this cycle.
The space will be located in the Southern part of the island and is being created with the intention of entertaining adults and children alike. The park can not only be used in order to relax or do some outdoor physical activities, it also provides an area which can be used for musical activities, cultural or educational purposes.
Apart from the space being utilised as a park, a Greek theatre and a pond will also be installed.
The Director General of Parks Malta, Adrian Attard has said that works have already started to be carried out and the project should be finalised in 2022.
Santa Luċija Mayor Charmaine St. John has shared that she is very ecstatic about the project and she hopes that it will continue to enhance the Serenity Garden whilst enriching Ġnien l-Iskultura.
The press conference was attended by Mr. Yu Dunhai, who is the Chinese ambassador to Malta, amongst other members from the Local Council of Santa Luċija.
