The park, which took about one year to complete and is equipped with various facilities, including sport centers, restaurants, horseback riding, artificial lake as well as sports centers, is part of Ahmed’s plan to transform Ethiopia’s tourism sector.
“We possess a naturally endowed country with astounding beautiful places. If we cooperate with each other, we can build spectacular places like this every year which can be used for various purposes including for recreation,” said the Ethiopian PM.
“We’ve shown you don’t need extraordinary efforts to build landmark structures. Ethiopia has naturally endowed areas beyond what many of us have guessed,” Ahmed further said.
Earlier this year, the Ethiopian PM unveiled plans to transform several natural wonders across Ethiopia into modern tourist hotspots.
The Entoto park has already provided employment opportunities for 463 low income mothers living in the surrounding areas.
Ethiopian authorities hoped that the Entoto natural park will create employment opportunities for thousands of locals, when it eventually operates at full capacity.
