The historic Villa Rundle Gardens hosts a large variety of local and foreign trees and shrubs. The site was enhanced and beautified between 2009 and 2012 to provide recreational facilities and an open space for families. The gardens are frequently used to host educational and social events in Gozo and act as one of the hubs of cultural activities in central Victoria.

An initiative – called the Gozo Biodiversity Explorer – was launched in 2015 to create a botanical database on all trees and shrubs in public gardens in Gozo. General information on the different species at Villa Rundle Gardens and Three Hills Gardens in Marsalforn were displayed publicly on text-engraved acrylic plaques attached on selected trees.
