New park being built in Khairkhana
KABUL (PAN): Construction of the Bibi Sarwary Park, a three-month project, recently began under the auspices of the Kabul Municipality, the United States Agency for International Development said on Sunday.
Located in the first part of the Khairkhana neighbourhood, the park is adjacent to Bibi Sarwary Sangari High School. When completed, it will provide a green space to filter air pollution and a place for students to enjoy.
The Kabul Municipality, responding to residents' demand for recreational places, is converting the previously empty land into a park. Although Bibi Sarwary Park is one of the first parks to be built at the district level, it will not be the last.
With support from the USAID, the Kabul Municipality will construct a perimeter wall, sidewalks, solar lighting facilities and guard and maintenance rooms; install a gate, irrigation and playground equipment; and provide trees, shrubs and flowers.
