56th Annual Flower Show

56th Annual Flower show which has been held uninterruptedly by the Horticultural Society of Pakistan (HSP) was opened up for public at Sea View Park on Thursday in collaboration with Defence Housing Authority (DHA).

DHA Nisar Shaheed Park won in large parks category, DHA Hilal Park (medium park), DHA Kh-e-Ban Ittehad (road medium), DHA Gizri Hill Complex (hillocks), DHA nursery Ph VIII (nurseries), DHA Rahat park (small parks), DHA degree college (colleges/schools), DHA Masjid Mustafa (mosques), Sindh Club (clubs, Karachi Port Trust House (official residences), Flag Staff House (kitchen garden), Administrator DHA’s house (crenature flower competition) and Saudi Consulate (foreign mission gardens) won first prizes in various categories.

All the gardens that won first prze are located in DHA. Is it a result of DHA collabration or there really are no good parks in other areas?
Where do Askari Park, Old Sabzi Mandi, Hill Park and the new Ibn-e-Qasim Park stand? were the officials responsible for these gardens never informed or they did not bother to participate?
What ever the reasons are, I strongly disagree with the winning parks to be the best ones in the city.

The flower show is open to the public until Sunday.

    its good that DHA builds and maintains nice parks and take care of them afterwards… for the rest of karachi ex nazim tried to create countless parks in different localities but it seems they all went down the drain coz of freezing of funds to get them compeleted and maintain afterwards …

    there are two parks in Block F north nazimabad, Fateh Park opposite Ziauddin Hospital almost 8 acres and left uncompelte(60 % work completed & now work frozen) and another park Alnoor Masjid Park almost 20 acres (40 % compelted and work halted )…

    only reason that i can think of for freezing of funds for these parks by MQM is that they’re both started by Ex Nazim Naimutullah Khan.. and his residence is walking distance from these parks…

    secondly that water park in Block C N.Nazimabad that was also started by ex Nazim and reason for stopped could be coz MQM lost from Block C Union COuncil so they’ve blocked funds for that UC…
