SUVA City special administrator Chandu Umaria has declared that the My Suva Picnic Park to be opened at Muanikau next week will be "one of the best recreation area and park to be found in the South Pacific".
Mr Umaria said the project had remained within budget, and visitors would have access to wheelchair-friendly public convenience and showers, an entertainment bure for people to play music, 24-hour security, CCTV cameras and later, food kiosks and a special area for dogs.
"This is an icon not only for Suva but for Fiji and the Pacific," he said.
The park will be opened on Thursday, November 7, by the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.
"A lot of time has been spent, and a lot of effort has been put into it, so we should be proud of this park."
