Buskett Gardens

Buskett Gardens, Malta’s only real woodland and one of the greenest areas, was planted the Knights as a hunting ground. It boasts a number of fruit-bearing trees, mostly oranges and lemons, as well as various plants and shrubs, and offers an ideal setting for a walk or a picnic. There is a cafe/restaurant, public toilets as well a car park. On the edge of Buskett Gardens is Verdala Place, the official summer residence of the President of Malta. The Palace is not normally open to the public, but Holy Mass (in Maltese) is celebrated in the Chapel every Sunday.
