Capital parks in a shambles

ISLAMABAD  – The public parks in almost each sector of the federal capital are in very poor condition due to negligence on the part of Capital Development Authority (CDA).

Public parks and playgrounds are very essential for promotion of healthy activities among people but unfortunately, the neglected parks in federal capital have failed to attract the visitors.

The residents of Islamabad complained that public parks situated in various areas were in very poor condition. The parks situated in posh sector F-6, F-7, G-6, G-7 and G-8 are in pathetic condition because the jogging tracks, swings, lights and benches installed in these parks have broken. Wild bushes are growing in these parks and the parks have turned to woods.

With advent of evening, the revellers and junkies thronged at these parks and make fuss. The families have started to avoid visiting these parks due to poor management. The residents have demanded of CDA to take notice of the situation and ensure entertainment facilities at these parks.Source: http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-daily-english-online/islamabad/10-Nov-2012/capital-parks-in-a-shambles
