István Tarlós has inaugurated the refurbished Musical well and Japanese garden on Margaret Island

The Musical well as well as the Rock-garden and Japanese garden of the Margaret Island has been opened. The island became more ordered over the last four years and further developments will take place in the future, said Mayor István Tarlós during the ceremony.

“The Margaret Island is one of the jewels of Budapest and Europe. Since the Municipality of the City of Budapest has taken over the management rights over the island, which always was in its possession, the area became nicer and more ordered during that year”, pointed out István Tarlós. He named among the implemented developments the eco children’s park inaugurated together with the Swedish Embassy or the refurbished musical well and the renewed Open-air Stage (Szabadtéri Színpad).

With regard to the renewal of the running track around the island István Tarlós has expressed that the city’s leadership has earlier decided on the investment, and the project start date became clear in the recent days. The running track will be widened and the Pest-side of the track will surely be completed this year, he said.

Along with the Musical well, the Rock and Japanese garden, built in the 1970’s, has also been inaugurated. The last reconstruction of the garden took place in 1992, thus the renewal of this valuable site, beloved by the inhabitants, became timely as well. During the planning the aim was to revitalize and complement garden elements, which enhance the Japanese feeling of the area, by keeping the existing, valuable basic attributes of the place.
