State government set to build ‘Metropolitan Park’ in 2016

The Lagos state government is building the ‘Metropolitan Park’ as part of it's plan to make Lagos a live-able city.

Central park in New York, USA

Lagos state is working on an eco-friendly project called the ‘Metropolitan Park’.

This park will be located at Aiyeteju, in Ibeju-Lekki Local Government, on five hectares of land.

According to Nigeriarealestatehub, the park was designed to look like the popular Central park in New York, USA.

Work is expected to start on the park next year.

The Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Samuel Adejare, spoke on the purpose of the park which is expected to go a long way in sustaining a green Lagos.

"The proposed recreational park will serve the people of Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju, Epe and its environs. We will need the private sector to be part of this project, which will be similar to the Central park in New York, United State. As a government, we sincerely believe that the business of governance is both the responsibility of the government and the governed. In particular, the role of the private sector in complementing the efforts of government in providing necessary support cannot be overemphasized. I therefore appreciate those organizations that have been playing their roles so far in this regard."

Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) is in charge of building this park and also, “Sustaining Our Green Lagos”.
