Accra, April 12, GNA – The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Isaac Kwame Asiamah, has said government will soon construct three Community Parks in some parts of the country.
The initiative is aimed at engaging the youth in exercising and keeping fit and to promote the development of sports in the country.
Mr. Asiamah made this known when he visited the Accra Sports Stadium and the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex on a working tour.
In an interview, the minister reiterated governments support to the youth and creating an enabling atmosphere for them to thrive to help the nation forward.
“We promised the people of Ghana more stadia across the country and we will see to that.
“We have plans far advanced to also construct multi-purpose community parks nationwide, but three of them will start soon by June,” he said.
According to Mr. Asiamah, the construction of the multi-purpose community parks would serve as play grounds for communities, where children could play and exercise as well.
