THE Nature Park in Port Moresby is bound to increase its visitors with the construction of a new picnic village at the park.
The project worth K400,000 will include toilet blocks and huts for visitors to use while enjoying the rainforest and wild life there.
The park’s general manager Michele McGeorge   said that 120,000 international tourists visited the park last year.
“Also 14,000 school children visited the park to do their assignments last year. With the construction of the new picnic village, we are hoping that more visitors will come here.”
McGeorge said they planned to promote the park as a soft landing spot for international tourists so they can get oriented.
Tourism Minister Tobias Kulang, when launching the project, said that he was happy with the park’s development and urged the Tourism Promotion Authority to promote it.
TPA chief executive officer Jerry Agus also attended the event.
