Jheel Park Reborn!

Over the years this massive park right behind Tariq Roads main commercial area had deteriorated into a hideout and residence of various junkies, drug peddlers and other nefarious elements. The last government took it upon themselves to clean up this park and restore its original luster. Although it is still a work in progress it looks lovely, with pagodas and an arched entrance of columns from Tariq Road with steps leading down to the pathways lined with long palm trees.

Hats off to Farrukh Ahmed of KMB for this idea!

    few days back when we got stuck somewhere and tried to used small lanes we came to this park and at that time i had decided i shall come again with a camera and do a post on it but thanks faisal for taking care of it though i would love to see more pics but thats okay.

    This one along with few other would be counted as some good deeds by the CDGK under Mustafa Kamal. We need more of these all over KARACHI but well done the administration of that area.
