At the southern tip of Qawra land which was left untouched once reclaimed back by the government was developed into a national park.  Salini National Park has more than 12,000 Maltese indigenous tree species such as the Mediterranean oak, bay laurel, olive and myrtle among others.  The park has a parking area with 37 parking bays.

Its main attraction is an open fountain that is surrounded by natural turf. This is a great place to rest and relax on the benches found here to sunbathe or do some reading. There is an artificial water stream which flows from this turfed area to a lateral entrance.

For the convenience of visitors there is a privately owned and operated cafeteria and the park offers a free filtered Wi-Fi system. Visitors can visit The Kennedy Grove area which forms the lowest terrace of the Salina Park. It was named in honor of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Here you’ll find various water features and foot paths.
