Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) plans to build new parks with exceptional amenities in the current fiscal year, bringing the total number of parks in Islamabad up to 250.
CDA has set aside funds for the creation of new parks that will be built in a number of locations, including Bhara Kahu and sections H-8, I-14, and I-16.
For planned initiatives that would be carried out in accordance with best worldwide practices to establish the natural environment of the green city, the CDA’s environment wing is putting up Project Concept I (PC-I).
It is pertinent to state that the civic organisation holds 350 acres of forest land north of sector D-12 along the Margalla Road, from the Shahpur road stop to Bhara Kahu on the Murree side. This land will be used to build the second-largest park, with a total area of 155 acres.
The CDA and Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration have also recently received instructions from the federal government to boost forest cover and create public leisure areas that are environmentally friendly.
Currently, CDA is working on efforts to create parks in the city as well as a tree planting programme.
An official stated that parks have been built in a number of sectors, including D-12, E-11, F-6, F-11, F-10, G-7, G-11, G-14, H-8, I-8, I-9, I-10, I-11, I-14, I-16, Park Enclave, Diplomatic Enclave, Rawal Town, Shahzad Town, Bani Gala, Mulpur, Shakrial, Shakarparian, and Khana Pull.
