Askari Park reopens in Karachi

The famous Askari Park located at the old Subzi Mandi site reopens in Karachi.

The amusement park was reopened on Tuesday, 12th of February after being closed for almost six months.

It was closed last year in July just after its inauguration after an accident, which resulted in the death of a minor girl.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Askari Park Brigadier (retd) Shahzad told reporters that the park had been reopened after a change in management.

“This park is under new management. We have tried to adopt all international standards which are followed so such an accident does not happen again”, he said.

“There have been inspections in the last six months. The civil administration was also involved. KMC’s team carried out its investigation too”, he further added.

He also added that to avoid any more untoward incidents, a maintenance team has been formed to ensure the rides are safe. He said, “On our end, we called in experts who work with Disneyland to inspect the rides at the park”.

The Supreme Court has ordered the management of Askari Park to be handed over to the civilian authorities. Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah had ordered the city’s parks to be opened to the public.
