Along with renovation of the Minar-i-Pakistan (Pakistan Resolution Movement), the project features expansion of the Iqbal Park by including it in the stretch of Circular Road between the park and Lahore Fort.
The 125 acre green oasis is surrounded almost entirely by the old city of Lahore. Visitors can lounge on rolling lawns and take in the panoramic view of the symbolic Minar-e-Pakistan, the majestic Lahore Fort, the iconic Azadi Interchange and the historic Badshahi Mosque that also shelters the tomb of Allama Iqbal (1877-1938), a Muslim poet and one of the great spiritual thinkers and teachers of all times. For those who prefer a more active itinerary, 4 kilometre long walkways provide ample opportunities for running and cycling.
In addition the guests can take a stroll through the cascade surrounded by four memorial monuments, ride in the soft rail that runs along the 2 kilometre long Buggy Track or picnic near the lake and enjoy 800 feet long musical fountain performance. Moreover, the park features lush greenery, ample seating and artistic food courts and shopping kiosks for visitors.
A history museum and an outdoor amphitheatre are under construction with targeted completion date March 23, 2016 where the park-goers would be able to enjoy cultural performance during the colder winter months.
