islamabad - It is observed that recreational spots including Shakarparian, F-9 Park, Lake View Park, Rawal Dam Park, Marghazar Zoo and number of other parks are in a shabby condition.  “The parks situated in most of the sectors, including F-6, F-7, G-6, G-7 and G-8 are in pathetic conditions with broken jogging tracks, swings, lights and benches,” said Amjad Iqbal, a resident of Sector G-8/2.

He said wild bushes had grown in a park close to his house.

There was no one to replace or get them repaired, depriving his children and others of the locality of the recreational facilities, he added.–APP
