Satellite images show how Karachi’s Bagh-Ibne-Qasim became a park from a wasteland

Fully renovated Bagh-Ibne-Qasim park is set to be opened for public this weekend

In 2001, the area which is now Bagh-Ibne-Qasim was nothing more than a wasteland with wild plants, trash heaps, and desolate sand. Fast forward it to 2019, it is now a fully functional public park that is easily one of the best parks in Pakistan.

Karachites have been waiting for a very long time for the park to be completed and it is now finally fully renovated and ready to be opened for the public.

Yesterday, the Mayor of Karachi announced that the restored Bagh Ibne Qasim park is set to be inaugurated on 30th March by the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

This park is not only one of the best looking parks of Pakistan but is also one of the largest parks of the country stretching over 130 acres.

We present to you the before and after photos of the long restoration of Bagh Ibne Qasim as seen through the eyes of a Sattelite.
