PARKS Malta

 
Parks Malta was established in February 2020. 

Parks Malta’s responsibility is the upkeep and maintenance of national parks and other public spaces but also the implementation of the management plans for the Natura 2000 Sites.
 
Sites like the Ta’ Qali National Park, Adventure Park, Picnic Area including the dog parks, Petting Farm, Salina National Park, Family Park and Buskett will remain under the management of Ambjent Malta. The department has already embarked in large capital projects such as the restoration of Argotti Botanical Gardens, Ġnien San Filippu, Żabbar Regional Park, Ġnien L-Għarusa tal-Mosta, and Urban Greening projects. Other initiatives are taking place at the Park Nazzjonali tal-Inwadar and Majjistral Park.
 
The Valley Management unit responsible for the maintenance of valleys has been integrated within Ambjent Malta. Keeping the watercourse clear from invasive vegetation, accumulated material and fly-tipped waste is the main task of the unit.
 
The Malta Embellishment and Landscaping Project (MELP) also falls under the responsibility of Parks Malta. MELP is responsible for the monitoring of the public private partnership with Environment and Landscaping Consortium (ELC).
  
The 34U campaign is one of the initiatives which has helped to make the Malta greener. In fact managed to encourage and empower the general public to plant over 100,000 trees in various identified planting sites. Ambjent Malta is committed to continue on the good work done so far. Beside the 34U campaign, Parks Malta will be planting an indigenous tree for every birth and every new car imported (Budget Measures)
