Manama’s Water Garden revamp 85% complete

Revamp works on the Water Garden in Manama are now 85 percent complete, the Minister of Works, Municipal Affairs, and Urban Planning has said.

Issam bin Abdullah Khalaf said that the new car parks are 99 percent complete, while 80 percent of the service buildings have also been finished.

The works, which have seen clay removed from both of the lakes inside the park, are expected to be finished within the next three months.

Improvement works have also seen fruit trees including lemon, pomegranate, mango and fig, as well as aromatic trees such as Indian jasmine added to the park. More palm trees have also been added.

More seating areas have been created in the park, and games for children will be added in the coming weeks.

The works are part of the ministry’s strategy to increase the number of green areas in the Kingdom and provide entertainment projects for citizens and residents.

More than BHD2.5 million has been spent renewing the 6.57 hectare area in Gufool.
