RAWALPINDI: (Parliament Times) Residents of Adiala road have voiced strong protest against abolition of public park namely 502 park (old name Zia park) and construction of a government school in place of this park.
The citizens said that this is the only park which serves as recreational spot to the residents of Lala Zar, Dheri Hassan, Tahli Mori and surrounding localities. People from all age brackets including children and ladies come here for morning and evening walk daily . It is being abolished and a school is being constructed therein. The construction of school will not only eliminate a solitary source of recreation for the residents but it will create massive traffic jams daily as the traffic rush will increase manifold due to construction of school.
The residents of the area have appealed to government to be compassionate on their nerves and not to deprive them of the only source of recreation by abolishing the park.
