West View Park will be open to the public between 7pm and midnight on National Day for a clear view of the National Day Fireworks Display.
St Bernard’s Hospital will restrict access to its garden and podium areas during these hours for safety and security reasons with extra security measures put in place at the Hospital for this purpose only.
The Gibraltar Health Authority raised concerns over the security of the hospital when large crowds gather on hospital premises to view the Fireworks Display. The area is also used by the Ambulance Service for access to and from the A&E Department and must remain clear at all times.
A Government statement said that the public are advised to use West View Park to view the Firework Display.
