Expect a major facelift for Tikaram Park in Lami, after a major ground-breaking ceremony yesterday.

Minister for Local Government, Housing and Environment, Parveen Kumar was on hand to do the honours, for the $590,000 project.

“The new upgrading will allow the construction of this park into three major projects, to be exact a podium, a senior citizen park and a recreation area,” Mr Kumar said.

“I note that numerous requests have been received from residents of Lami for Council to provide such facilities,” he said.

“I am happy to announce that this will now finally be realised through funding by Government under my Ministry for Local Government, Housing and Environment,” he said.

Tikaram Park was donated to the Council by the Tikaram family and it has been enjoyed by everyone who resides in Lami, Mr Kumar said.

The announcement has already been welcomed by town residents.

Lami special administrator Jasper Singh said: “This was on our agenda for more than 10 years, for 10 years we had a dream and a vision to have a podium on this park.”
