The Municipal Development Fund of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia is carrying out a large-scale renovation project in one of the most popular and picturesque parks of Tbilisi, Mziuri, which was devastated as a result of a flood on June 13, 2015.
Within the scope of the project, it is planned to give new life to the park and completely rehabilitate it and the territory, adjacent to the Tchabua Amirejibi Highway.
Skateboard parks, soccer fields, bicycle paths, children’s playgrounds, an artificial lake, as well as gardens and other greeneries are to be set up in the vicinity of the Mziuri Park, transforming it into the best recreational zone of the city, suitable for all age groups.
