Beirut municipality to open new public parks!

Beirut is more crowded than ever! People need space to breath fresh air and relax in nature. There are many parks in Lebanon where people can hang out, but that’s not enough. The Municipality of Beirut

announced

that it would renovate the park of Saint Nicholas, Sioufi Garden, Jesuits Garden, and Horsh Beirut. The renovation of Archbishop Elias Odeh Park is complete. It includes underground parking that can fit 120 cars. The park will officially open to the public in June. The Municipality will also open the following parks!

  • Pierre Gemayel Garden
  • Ramle Al Bayda Garden
  • Moufti Hassan Khaled Garden

More trees in Beirut

These parks are parts of the municipality’s green project. A few months ago, Green Cedars Lebanon (GCL) proposed to the Municipality of Beirut a project called “Making Cities Green” that can solve this issue.

GCL will plant 10,452 trees

over the course of ten years. The trees will be planted in different areas of the Lebanese capital, and they will be of multiple types. The Mayor of Beirut Jamal Itani and the representative of Green Cedar Lebanon’s executive director Pascale Choueiry signed the agreement under the patronage of Prime Minister Saad Hariri who planted the first tree in the Grand Serail. Beirut is in desperate need of green areas. Trees purify the air and add bright colors to the urban landscape.
