Despite acknowledging financial constraints causing delays in various projects, he shared his vision of creating additional recreational spots within the city.
Deputy Mayor Karachi, speaking on the occasion, highlighted ongoing development initiatives across all seven districts of Karachi. He also announced plans to introduce horse riding at Dino Safari Park in the near future.
The zip line project was mentioned earlier this year in August when Mayor Karachi inaugurated the newly-developed dinosaur park in Safari Park. He stated that the zip line project would soon be operational in the park.
It is noteworthy that the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) had announced last year its intention to launch a zipline at Bagh Ibne Qasim near Clifton’s coastline. The announcement was made by the then City Administrator, Murtaza Wahab, who now serves as the Mayor of Karachi. However, the zipline is yet to be installed at Bagh Ibne Qasim.
