The lively Sofia Central Park, known as Borisova Gradina, named after Bulgaria's last king, Boris III, became Wednesday property of Sofia City Hall.
The decision was made by the Council of Ministers during their regularly scheduled meeting. With the decision, the Sofia City Hall is to manage and maintain the entire territory of the park – 33 hectares, part of which until now was owned by the State.
Last week the Sofia municipal council voted a proposal to begin managing 32.9 hectares of the park with 24.9 of them being park lands and another 8 inside the dendrarium. The Deputy Mayor, Maria Boyadzhiyska, said then that the City Hall provides BGN 600 000 for the maintenance of the park.
