KABUL - A recreational park, benefitting more than 5000 families, would be established in the first Macro Ryan neighborhood of the capital, the Kabul Municipality announced on Sunday.
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.
