Ratna Park reopens for public


The Kathmandu Metropolitan City has reopened Ratna Park, one of the oldest parks in the capital city, for the general public. Ratna Park had remained closed for the last one year for reconstruction and renovation.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Federal Affairs and Local Development Prakash Man Singh led the reopening ceremony today.

Now onwards, entry fee of Rs 25 per person has been fixed, it was informed during the opening ceremony today.

On the occasion, DPM Singh directed the metropolis officials to preserve and maintain the park which is owned by the KMC. Speaking at the inaugural programme, Somlal Subedi, Secretary at the Ministry of Local Development, shared that a concrete plan would be introduced for proper management of the park and its physical infrastructure.

Likewise, KMC Executive Officer Rudrasingh Tamang informed that a grievance unit will be set up so as to allow the general public to lodge their grievances and complaints in connection with the park's management.

He added that as part of KMC's 'clean and green capital city', more parks will be established in the Kathmandu Municipality in coming days.

Ratna Park will serve as an open space in the congested capital city.
