A recent move by the company ZzE Parks (Malta) Ltd to place permanent park tables on the Floriana granaries has sparked a heated debate among locals. The move, which involved placing 14 sets of park tables on the ditches, has drawn mixed reactions from residents and visitors alike.

According to a report in the local media, the tables were installed as part of the regeneration of the Floriana granaries area. However, many have expressed concerns about the impact of the tables on the open space, arguing that the granaries are not a suitable location for a picnic area.

While some have praised the move as a way to encourage more people to spend time in the area, others have criticized it as an infringement on the public space. Some have argued that the granaries should remain an open space for the public to enjoy, while others have suggested alternative locations for picnic tables and benches.

The controversy has sparked a lively debate on social media, with many expressing their opinions on the issue. Some have called for the tables to be removed, while others have suggested that the location could be improved with additional amenities such as lighting and seating.

As the debate continues, it remains to be seen what action will be taken in response to the controversy. While the tables may offer a convenient spot for a picnic or gathering, their impact on the open space of the Floriana granaries is a concern for many.
