Greater Iqbal Park being inaugurated by PM
ISLAMABAD: (APP) Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Saturday will inaugurate the Greater Iqbal Park.
The park, besides providing entertainment to the citizens, will also become a new landmark of Pakistan's culture.
Along with renovation of the Minar-i-Pakistan, the project features expansion of the Iqbal Park by including it in the stretch of Circular Road between the park and Lahore Fort, said a press release of the PM office media wing.
The 125-acre green oasis is surrounded almost entirely by the old city of Lahore.
Visitors can lounge on rolling lawns and have the panoramic view of the symbolic Minar-e-Pakistan, the majestic Lahore Fort, the iconic Azadi Interchange and the historic Badshahi Mosque that also shelters the tomb of Allama Iqbal.
