Ghana has constructed a national park located between the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium and the Independence Square in honour of its gallant heroes.
Mr Charles Nii Okine, Principal Landscape Designer of Parks and Gardens Division of the Castle, told the GNA that the park would serve as a tourist and recreational garden for people to relax.
Features of the park include washrooms, well sculptured statues and unique trees like the Thuga Orientalis, Cane Palm, Allamadan, Exora, and Thunberjia. Mr Okine said the facility, which was constructed by Parks and Gardens in collaboration with National Security, was designed to honor national heroes of the February 28th shooting incident at the castle intersection, an event which occurred prior to our Independence in 1957.
He said among other things to be displayed at the park would include brochures of our national heroes so that people would have a fair knowledge of our past heroes.
Mr Okine assured the public of their safety, as the National Security would provide security to safe guard the park and protect the visitors of the park.
