Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar while addressing a ceremony held in the Ahmed Ali Park, Kidney Hill announced that KMC is establishing a state of the art park in the area. The hilly site will be transformed into a city forest with plantation of over five thousand trees and the park will soon be opened for visitors. Moreover a chairlift would also be installed Hill Park to Kidney Hill Park near Shaheed-e-Millat Road. The chairlift will be installed under coordination with the private sector.
The chairlift is being installed because no such recreational facility is available in the city since the closure of chairlift at the Safari Park. The citizens who could not afford going to Murree or Islamabad in summer season would be able to enjoy the same hill resort environment in their own city.
Vice Admiral Arifullah Husaini (retd), Metropolitan Commissioner KMC Dr Syed Saif-ur-Rehman, members of assembly, councilors, district chairman, traders and citizens were also present on this occasion. Metropolitan Commissioner Dr Syed Saif-ur-Rehman said this park was handed over by KDA to KMC in 1974. Ahmed Ali was a renowned town planner and this park named after him.
