The Aga Khan Trust for Culture will spend 2.6b/- for the rehabilitation of Forodhani park in Zanzibar�s historical Stone Town.

The revitalisation project will upgrade social and recreational amenities, including walkways, improvement to the park`s landscaping, lighting, sewerage, drainage and civic amenities.

Speaking yesterday at the project`s launching ceremony held here, Zanzibar First Lady Shadya Karume said rehabilitation of the park would help strike a balance between competing uses as a park and area of beauty, as well as economic opportunities.
