The Ganilau Park has been redeveloped with an objective of providing sports and events for the people of Savusavu.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the historic Park was damaged during Cyclone Winston.
The government provided a grant of $300,000 for the redevelopment following a request from the Town Council.
Bainimarama says the Savusavu town has developed and is expected to grow economically with the arrival of super yachts.
“Sports is an integral part of every town’s development. The promotion of sports requires innovative infrastructure development and government has every intention and commitment to advance sports infrastructure development in all towns and cities. This will ensure that our young people have facilities to play and of course watch world class tournaments.”
The 2nd phase of work at the Park include perimeter fencing and installing floodlights.
Government has provided $64, 000 for this work.
