facilities including bridal gardens,
lights, parking area and walkways
already put in place, writes Chris Kiwawulo.
The park housing Kampala City Councilâ€™s (KCC) 100-yearâ€™s memorial monument that was hitherto surrounded by overgrown grass and had turned into a den of city goons, has been transformed to a beautiful leisure centre.
The public park is partitioned with a wire mesh that separates the bridal gardens with twinkling lights from the rest of the area covering 13 acres.
In addition to landscaping, planting of grass, trees and flowers, Sarah Kizito, the developer, has trimmed them to give the park natural greenery and breath-taking ambience.
Kizito, a city businesswoman, who won the KCC contract to develop the park, recently said she had invested quite a sum of money at the park, but declined to reveal the amount. She is a wife of Kampala central division chairman, Godfrey Nyakaana.
Meanwhile, Kizito has started offering public parking services to motorists at the park. A security official whom this reporter found at the parking yard advised people who want parking space to contact management.
KCC spokesperson, Simon Muhumuza said the council had allowed Kizito to put up a parking yard for guests to the bridal gardens, although she started offering parking services before the development of the park is complete.
