CDA is planning to develop new parks in Islamabad. The parks are planned to be constructed in Bara Kahu, H-8, I-16 and in I-14 Islamabad.
According to a CDA spokesperson, development work is underway in I-16/2 and I-14/4 with plans to construct parks, walking trails, and provide facilities for healthy activities. All these parks will help increase beauty of the city and will give a place for the city residents to enjoy family time and also to stay physically active. Parks would be built in Sectors I-16/2 and I-14/1, he stated.
According to a statement, development in both sectors had been halted for a long time, and the civic agency’s present management had initiated road infrastructure, drainage systems, and other facilities in the first phase.
“Now it has been decided to provide parks and walking tracks so that residents would have healthy activities. Plantation has been started in the parks and flowers will also be planted to enhance the beauty of parks,” it said.
“Moreover it has been decided to install swings, build walkways and jogging tracks. There will be arrangements to keep parks clean,” the statement said.
A new park near Bhara Kahu in the national park region has been proposed to make Islamabad more green and family friendly. A separate zone for women and children will be included in this park, in addition to other attractions.
The park would also have a walking track, children’s play equipment, workout units, a water sports area, a mini-golf course, and a woodland area, according to the CDA.
According to CDA officials, the park would be built on 350 acres in Forest Number 8.
According to them, the CDA owns around 350 acres of forest property from Shahpur road stop to Bhara Kahu on the Murree side before the start of Bhara Kahu. This space, they declared, would be used for the park.
In addition, the Pakistan Movement Park is being built along the Islamabad Expressway, centered around H-8’s tallest flag.
