The redeveloped Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park (KNMP) in Accra will undergo a temporary closure from Friday, July 7, until Tuesday, July 11, 2023.
Mr. Edward Quao, the Acting Director of the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, stated that the temporary closure aims to facilitate preparations for the commercial operations of the park.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused, and we are committed to delivering a remarkable experience that exceeds the expectation of the community and visitors,”
On Tuesday, 4th July 2023, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana, officially commissioned the redeveloped Park.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo expressed his belief that the revamped park will attract approximately one million domestic and international tourists on an annual basis.
The President further highlighted that the government remains committed to investing in the tourism sector as part of its efforts to revive the economy.
The facility, which serves as the resting place of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and his wife, Fathia Nkrumah, is situated on the former polo grounds in Accra, where Ghana’s independence was declared. It has been refurbished at a cost of $3.5 million.
