Work on US-funded park launched in Kabul
The foundation stone of the park, spread over 3.5 acres of land, was laid by Mayor Mohammad Yunus Nawandesh. The USAID-funded park, costing $120,000 would be set up in three months, the mayor said.
The park will have a boundary wall, a ground, sport equipment and chairs, as well as basketball and volleyball courts. It will also have sidewalks, a green belt, an irrigation system, a guards' room and a power supply system.
Nawandesh said more than 5000 families living in 1st and 3rd Macro Ryan, Qala-i-Zaman Khan and Samant Khana would benefit from the project.
The mayor added the process of reconstruction and rehabilitation was underway in 84 areas of Kabul. The city would give a whole new look in the next three years, he promised.
