WATCH: Rwanda unveils recreational eco-tourism park in Kigali

Kigali – The Rwandan government on Monday unveiled a recreational centre that was created after the restoration of a degraded wetland area in the capital city of Kigali.

The Nyandungu Eco-Tourism Park, the first recreational centre opened in Kigali, represents the value of restoring urban ecosystems and will serve as a blueprint for other wetlands in Kigali and across the country, said Juliet Kabera, Director General of the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA), at the launch event.
