The Government of
Hungary assigned the right to the use of the current property as
the location of the Regional Environmental Center for Central
and Eastern Europe (REC) for 99 years in the form of an in-kind
contribution in 1995. With the support of the Italian
Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea, the comprehensive
reconstruction of the garden began in 2005 and was completed in
2007. The design was created by Agroinnova Italy.
To launch the reconstruction, the first tree
was planted by H.E. Katalin Szili, speaker of the Hungarian
Parliament, in spring 2005.
The garden, which has received the status of
arboretum, is open to groups of visitors from schools,
kindergartens and other institutions.
