I’ve been meaning to take Brian to the Zouk Mikhael public garden for more than a year now and every time I pass by there’s a sign that says it’s closed for renovation and will re-open soon. Is the municipality really renovating the garden or they just decided to close it down? It’s quite weird that such a popular garden would be closed for so long for no specific reason and I can’t find anything online related to its renovation or why it’s been closed down.

For those who are not familiar with the garden, it’s a beautiful space with trees and flowers and a small playground for kids. We used to love going there as kids because it was the only decent garden we had in the area (Keserwan).

Does anyone have any information about it? When will it re-open? What’s happening there?

PS: Speaking public parks, the one in Marina Dbayyeh is still not open yet, even though it was supposed to open back in 2014. I guess they’re waiting for the elections LOL!
