Daily Nation Africa: New park changes face of Mali capital

Bamako, Saturday

Mali marked its 50th independence celebrations a week ago and one of the events lined up was the inauguration of a new park in its capital, Bamako.

The 250-acre National Park of Mali was created under a public-private partnership between the government of Mali and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC).

And on hand during its inauguration were Mali’s President Amadou Toumani Toure and His Highness the Aga Khan, who were also joined by visiting heads of state from across Africa.

The park creates a permanent green space in one of the fastest growing cities in Africa.
