In today’s ever increasing sale of public lands reserved for the intended purposes such as recreational grounds under the good leadership of Ghana`s first President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah all hopes seems to be lost as this negative trend never ceases.
Thankfully, Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana under the auspices of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly has taken the lead in constructing one of the most ultra-modern recreational site in the entire country.
I can’t hold my joy because at long last a metropolitan assembly has done something positive for the citizens of its jurisdiction.
KUMASI THE KNOWN GARDEN CITY OF GHANA.
Once upon a time, Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti region was known as Ghana`s GARDEN CITY. It is the second largest city in Ghana, the seat of the King of the Ashanti Kingdom was blessed with everything green. Nature was a friend to this garden city, Trees of different types, kinds and sizes, grass of different kinds, water bodies, rivers, streams, lagoons etc. made life in Kumasi not just a beautiful city but a naturally priceless city.
Time they say is a “killer”, as it passes us by, several factors including human activities compounded with the lack of good leadership have succeeded in completely erasing the “Garden” from this traditionally historic city.
As at today, Kumasi has almost lost its shine, yet indications shows that not all hope is lost.
LOST HOPE? HOLD ON, THERE IS GOOD NEWS, THOUGH IT’S A DIME LIGHT, IT IS STILL AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL FOR THE ONCE UPON A TIME GARDEN CITY OF GHANA TO PICK UP IT`S FORMER GLORY.
The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has finally shown concern in its quest to restore Kumasi to its Garden City status under the KMA’s special project known as “Greening Kumasi”.
THE GOOD NEWS:
It is undoubtedly one major recreational facility in the metropolis and one of the best in the country for public visit.
Some of the major facilities that one can have access to whiles there include Musical Fountain, Outside Gymnasium, Serene Natural Atmosphere, Cafeteria, Children Playground artificial lake etc.
You are also assured to receive numerous services including access to Wi-Fi, safe parking space, live football matches, jazz night among others.
It is an enviable ultra-modern park to benefit the people of Kumasi and the Ashanti Region as a whole as it begins its journey to pick up its once enviable records.
BENEFITS OF PATRONIZING RECREATIONAL PARKS:
There are many ways to participate in active and healthy activities, whatever it is you must do to get fit, stay healthy, find peace of mind or learn something new, recreational grounds are the best of places for such acquisition, believe me because I have given it a try and it has worked for me that it has become part and parcel of me when I need to refresh myself.
So next time you are in Kumasi, don’t forget to take the family along to enjoy the full benefit of this important park for the welfare of yourself and family.
I will post in my next blogging an abridged note of the importance one gains from patronizing recreational parks.
For now I say Ayekoo to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) and its development partners for a great job done.
