Agriculture Ministry prepares parks for Eid holiday throngs

The Agriculture Ministry concluded on Sunday the preparation of parks and public spaces in Cairo, Giza and other provinces ahead of the national holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

It is anticipated that large amounts of people will seek to spend time outdoors during the holiday, putting pressure on public places such as parks and museums.

Minister Essam Fayed said that plans have been put in place to counter congestion and keep parks clean. At Giza Zoo, for example, extra entrances to the park will be opened up, with more ticket booths and a more staff to manage the park during the busy Eid period. 

Similar preparations have taken place at the Agriculture Museum in Dokki, the Zamalek Fish Garden, El Orman Garden in Giza, Antoniadis Palace Gardens in Alexandria and the Botanical Gardens in Aswan, ready to receive visitors.

Security and health departments in different provinces have coordinated to secure the parks and provide ambulances and fire engines in case of emergency, Fayed said.

The minister also instructed authorities and citizens to watch out for trespassers during the crowded holiday.
