Bonita Trust, in partnership with Gibraltar Government is re-developing distinct areas of Alameda Gardens to bring a variety of entertainment and leisure areas for all visitors consisting of a play area and educational facilities. The project meets the highest EU safety standards, built to sustainable and easy to maintain standards. Bonita Trust’s goal is to create a lasting legacy and to assist in developing the garden to its full potential.
The Alameda Gardens were founded in 1816 by the Governor, General George Don to provide an area for recreation for the residents of Gibraltar.
The Gardens are a historic area of interest where visitors can see a living collection representative of Gibraltar; there is a large collection of plants from Mediterranean climatic zones around the world. In addition the Gardens contribute towards the conservation of the flora of Gibraltar and its hinterland and provide a range of educational programmes.
Ruth Parasol founding member of the International Advisory Board, said “This is a transformational project for the Alameda Gardens and we are pleased that Bonita Trust has had the opportunity to be part of this re-development.”
