Invest in Chadwick Lakes for Tourism Purposes

The Chadwick Lakes project aims to conserve and promote the Wied il-Qlejjgha (Chadwick Lakes) for tourism purposes. It will invest in the natural and cultural resources of the site. The primary objective will be that of regenerating and valorizing the valley, creating an innovative venue for natural heritage tourism, whilst generating sensitivity toward biodiversity. In principle, therefore it is fully aligned with the scope of Priority Axis 5 of Operational Programme I. Natural heritage tourism remains untapped in Malta and hence this will be an innovative experience seeking to exploit a niche market. The project will transform this location, from its present derelict state, into a natural park, restoring valley biodiversity and the original valley profile to enhance water storage. Being close to Mdina and Rabat, the site has high potential to integrate with the surrounding heritage sites and nonetheless with the forthcoming Water Conservation Awareness Centre at Rabat.
