On the Serail Hill southern slope, the garden was conceptualized in a cascading manner in accordance with the site topography. Elongated planes of gray stone and water mirrors, laid on a grass surface, step down towards the city.

A row of jacaranda trees marks the edge between the steps and the Grand Serail façade. A sculpture by Maguerditch Mazmanian (Russia) represents the late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri walking through the garden.
