The head of state got acquainted with the beautification works carried out in the national park of Uzbekistan.
The park was built in 1932 and has been a favorite place for many years. Later, there were constructions in the park area – Writers’ Avenue, Writers’ Union building, Tashkent city history museum, “Magic city” entertainment center were built.
The President emphasized the need to preserve the historical guise of the park, to create an atmosphere typical of national traditions.
Work has been completed on an area of more than 14 hectares. An administrative building, restaurants were built, bridges and roads were renovated. The lake with an area of 40,000 square meters has been restored. Special coatings were laid at the bottom of the lake so that water does not leak and become muddy. The shores were put in order and a swimming pool was established. More than a thousand trees and about 200 thousand bush seedlings were planted.
Here, the head of state talked with the elderly, representatives of literature and art. He congratulated them on the Independence Day and spoke about the importance of the park.
“The changes taking place in our cities today are good. But we also need to respect our values. This park used to be the most famous place of Tashkent, and has become one of its symbols. People came here for a walk, artists got pleasure and inspiration from nature. The most enjoyable moments of students and young people were spent here. We need to harmonize this history with the present day,” Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
It was reported that the conditions for meaningful recreation have been created in the national park. You can go for a walk with family or friends, eat, play chess and tennis, ride a bicycle.
“We all know well the songs from our popular movies, such as “Beautiful Tashkent”, songs performed by our singers, they are deeply rooted in our hearts. That’s why we paid attention to the fact that such songs are always heard in this park. I think that it is appropriate to hold concerts and movies here as before. These will make our garden more beautiful and refreshing,” the head of state added.
