The renovated Forodhani Gardens in Zanzibar Stone Town

After more than 18 months of redesign construction time, Forodhani Gardens have opened again last week. Rehabilitated by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) at a cost of $2.2 million, the park was officially opened on the 30th of July 2009 by Zanzibari President Amani Abeid Karume in a function that was also attended by His Highness the Aga Khan.

The 1.4 acre park has regained its landmark status with a fresh new look that added to the beauty of the old Stone Town, itself a World Heritage Site recognised for its exceptional significance to mankind.

We have uploaded more images of the redesigned park to Flick. And you can read a full article about the redesign of the park on allAfrica.com following this link
