Karachi: Karachiites will benefit from the chairlift and cable car, which will provide connectivity between the two important hilly recreation sites in the middle of Karachi.

The announcement to this effect was made by the administrator of Karachi, lawyer Murtaza Wahab, during the launch of the paragliding and archery facilities in one of the main housing projects in the suburbs of Karachi. .

The chairlifts will be installed from Hill Park to Kidney Hill Park, as both recreation sites are located close to one of the city’s main arteries, the Shaheed-e-Millat Road. Hill Park has been a former recreation area while recently Kidney Hill Park has been transformed from a garbage dump into an urban forest.

Paragliding installation

The Karachi administrator also announced that a paragliding facility will also be launched from Kidney Hill Park. He indicated that the installation work for the chairlifts would begin in the coming weeks.

He said an effort was being made to promote a positive image of Karachi by transforming the city’s parks, beach and playgrounds.

Lawyer Wahab said that the city’s parks and playgrounds belong to the people of Karachi as they should come forward to play a role in the revival of these facilities.

He said it was high time to revive the entertainment and recreation in the city after the restoration of peace in Karachi.

With a maximum height of 219 feet, Kidney Hill Park is considered the highest point in Karachi as one of the hills in the park now displaying the Pakistani flag and the park’s name in giant size which resembles the famous Gibraltar Rock.

Dr Syed Saifur Rehman, who as Karachi Metropolitan Commissioner recently worked on the Kidney Hill project, said the area, after taking the form of an urban jungle, served as a reservoir of oxygen for the city and was also helping to restore Karachi’s natural ecosystem.

The senior official said that the most important aspect was that the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC), the city’s cash-strapped municipal authority, had spent its own financial resources to develop the hilly area because no grants were made. ‘had been withdrawn from the government of Sindh for the purpose.

He said 62 acres of park land had been used to plant 150,000 saplings of native species, as the plantation consisted mostly of fruit trees.

The park, after becoming a green space, has also started to attract several species of birds that are rarely seen in Karachi due to massive cutting of trees and increasing environmental pollution.
