Residents young and old gathered to inaugurate a new park in Beirut's southern suburb of Shiyah Wednesday evening.The gated park, encircled by residential buildings on Abdel-Karim al-Khalil Street, holds green grass and a number of bushes and trees centered around a traditional Mediterranean-style Lebanese house. Ghobeiry's Mayor Mohammad Said al-Khansa and Public Works Minister Ghazi Zeaiter delivered speeches praising the residents of Beirut's southern suburbs and the planners of the park. While most residents were happy over the park, a welcome investment in a neighborhood that suffers from overcrowding and has a reputation as a cement jungle, some were not optimistic that it would stay in its current spotless state.
