King George V Gardens

The entrance of these Gardens is renowned for it's elaborate arch, with the British Monarchy coat-of-arms at the top. A bronze bust of King George V lies as you enter the garden. This garden was converted into Malta's first Playing Field and inaugurated in the 1930s. The bronze bust of King George V, who was deeply interested in the people of Malta and had many recollections of the Islands, was unveiled in July 1939.

In following years, the Malta Playing Fields Association continued to provide other more modern equipment and garden furniture. The planting of trees and flower beds rendered the grounds a popular garden.
