LESSON 10 P1 --- Ladies Park – a Shameless;


Dear Students: This site is developed for your help and guidance. We will appreciate your comments & feed back. Soon we will add other subjects to this site. Thanks

Rawalpindi's only exclusive park for women, "Fatima Park", in Satellite Town, B-Block is facing administrative and financial crisis. The park is turning into a jungle.
The park, which was a playground, was turned into an exclusive park for women in 1992. Commonly known as Ladies Park, it was visited by women from the adjoining areas of Banni, Rehmanabad, Affendi Colony and Shamsabad in the morning and evenings.
"In the beginning, the park was looked after, but then nothing was done," said a woman when she was interviewed by a journalist.
There was a hall for exercise. It had equipment for exercises, but now all equipment is gone. No one uses the hall because there is nothing left now," said another woman who had joined another club for exercise. The club is quite far from her house. Both these women and many others blamed the municipal authorities for the negligence of the park and the exercises hall. This was the only facility for the women in that locality. They demanded its restoration with all the facilities.
