The park which is a first of its kind for the town of Lami is a joint project between the Lami Town Council and the Ministry of Local Government.
The head of government while officially opening Tikaram Park said that government has overseen the construction of sporting facilities, courts and parks all throughout the country.
“A part of our campaign against the unacceptably high prevalence of non-communicable diseases in Fiji, we have gone to great lengths to give every Fijian the resources and support they need to make sport and physical exercise a bigger part of their lives.
“This new park has something to offer Fijians of all ages and from all walks of life, because it is never too late or too early to enjoy the outdoors, get moving and make sport and physical exercise a bigger part of our lives.”
The park features recreational and sports facilities for senior citizens and children including a BBQ area, podium and a volleyball court. Source: Fijian Government
