With regards to Projects Malta’s plans of turning Marsaskala’s public garden into a parking area, we believe that this will negatively impact the residents’ quality of life.
Over the years, Marsaskala has grown while eating away open spaces making the locality
lose its original character.
As a summer resident, I can tell you that the public garden is a vital spot for the urban
environment. It’s a place where people may sit down in the shade of the trees, where
children may play and where sparrows roost in the tamarisk trees.
It was refreshing to see that the local council has unanimously voted against the proposal.
However, it is expected that councillors stay consistent on other issues such as Sadeen’s
University at Żonqor.
