The children's playground at Place des Moulins has recently reopened, after a complete 6-week renovation by the Department of Urban Planning which began on January 15.
The redevelopment of the garden concerns in particular the fencing and gates, for the safety of children, the replacement of games and soft ground, the creation of planter-boxes set up around the trees of the garden, and the replacement of grass by synthetic grass that will prevent children from getting dirty in bad weather.
Particular attention has been paid to the choice of games so that children with reduced mobility or visually impaired can take full advantage of this very popular space.

The second on Tuesday, September 4, from 9 am, and Wednesday, September 5, by appointment (submission of candidatures before August 21).
To register, candidates must be under the age of 24 on the date of the contest; have a baccalaureate (students in Terminale are admitted subject to graduation); or have attended or finished university studies in France or abroad.
Exceptional derogations may be granted to candidates with a professional background or studies in line with artistic studies (for non-graduates, the level of general education must be equivalent to a baccalaureate).
Non-francophone students must pass a written test in French.
The academic year will begin on Monday, September 24. The registration fee for the entrance examination is €30.
The school, which is located on the Rock, also takes an active part in promoting contemporary works and Monaco’s cultural vocation.
In an effort to raise public awareness about art, ESAP offers technical workshops “to those who would like to initiate themselves to art or increase the spontaneity of their artistic expression”.
Courses are taught by qualified art teachers and the programs offered follow specific pedagogical project guidelines.

The exhibition celebrating 70 years of the Monaco Red Cross (MRC) closed its doors last Saturday, March 3, the anniversary day of the founding of the Red Cross in the Principality in March, 1948.
Prince Albert was welcomed on arrival by the members of the Executive Committee of the CRM, as well as members of the Board of Directors.
Also present were Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, and Stephane Valeri, President of the National Council. A hundred volunteers from the CRM had also been invited to the closing of the exhibition, which traced the highlights of the Monaco Red Cross, highlighting its commitment to its principles and the work of successive presidents, employees and volunteers of the association.
An anniversary stamp has also been published to provide a reminder of the times in office of the four presidents of the MRC who succeeded each other from 1948.
After a long visit, the Sovereign Prince left a message in the guestbook to show his enthusiasm on discovering the photos and videos presented. Prince Albert also congratulated the teams of the Monaco Red Cross and the scenographers for creating the commemorative exhibition.
