Citizens throng parks on occasion of Eid


The local residents and visitors from adjoining areas of the federal capital thronged parks and recreational spots on the third day of Eidul Azha.

Visitors, mostly families, thronged popular spots such as Lake View Park, Shakarparian, Marghazar Zoo, Daman-e-Koh, Jasmine Garden, Japanese Children Park, among other places. During holidays, one could see children enjoying in public parks and families setting up barbeque grills.

Shakarparian and National Monument remained busy spots in the capital followed by Fatima Jinnah Park, Rawal Lake View Park, Daman-e-Koh and Faisal Mosque, where thousands of people, including men, women and children enjoyed the holiday.

Rain on the first day of Eid turned the weather pleasant in the twin cities which was an added incentive for the people to visit parks and other public places. A large number of people were also seen travelling to Murree on second day. The city zoo and the adjacent children’s park also attracted a large number of people especially families.

The public transporters, including taxi drivers fleeced the people and charged fares at their own will. The rates of chips, biscuits, burgers, soft drinks, mineral water and other items were almost double in the parks of twin cities.
