Aga Khan Trust signs Sh1.7bn deal with State for City Park’s facelift

Nairobi’s City Park is set for rehabilitation at a cost of over $20 million (Sh1.7 billion) following the signing of a deal between the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) and the government.

The 90-year-old park in Parklands has been run down over the years, with human and housing encroachment, pollution, poaching and illegal logging spoiling its appeal.

The deal signed Thursday proposes to restore the 62-hectare park through a six-year exercise involving environmental improvement, landscaping and creation of new facilities.
