Susty Places: City Park, Abuja

This post was inspired by Peter Adeleye’s post on spaces for public leisure and community participation in Nigeria.

It has been a while I wrote on this column, I have been so busy with other projects that I forgot I visited this park the last time I went to Abuja, though it was evening time and I could not very get clear shots, I wanted to share this experience and ask that you take green pictures whenever you are around there.

City Park is located at Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent – Gate (beside Wok and Koi Express) Wuse II, FCT, Abuja.. I went with my friend Ita Enang (Actually he took me there when my nature pangs started getting out of control).

I liked it at the park, even though there were not alot of activities I could immediately get to do apart from eating 🙂 .. they had a great space for relaxation and pictures!

The park is however used as a spot for different sellers to come together every 1st Saturday of the month.  They call the event DMP (Designers Market Place). They have a paintball arena in there somewhere although we didn’t walk to that point

They have an Astro turf there for soccer (that’s an artificial pitch for like 5-A-Side soccer) and an impressive tennis court for cool kids as well.
