Zhob

Despite the fact that Zhob is considered to be the second largest city of the province, yet it has a chronic shortage of public parks. Children have no place to play sports. Last year Inspector General of the Frontier Corps inaugurated a newly built public part on Quetta road near Radio Pakistan, but is has been closed since the Covid-19 pandemic emergence. While another part near Kaliwal Shaheed chowk presents a picture of negligence since long. Poor maintenance, accumulated rain water, dysfunctional water fountain and broken equipments – is a glimpse of park, right under the nose of the Municipal Committee office.
The recreational facility could not attract the visitors to breathe in a congenial and clean environment in the past many years, as it has become futile for the public. The park has been turned into a grimy place because of the negligence of the Municipal administration. Although the public parks and playgrounds are essential for promotion of recreational activities, but due to the government’s apathy, here the park presents a picture of neglect. Lack of facilities.
