All children will be charged a fee of GH¢5 before entering the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park.

The park officially opened commercially on July 11, 2023.

The Acting Director of the park, Edward Quao, told Citi News the money was needed to run the facility.

“We have new facilities in the Park, and we need money to maintain them and so if we don’t put these measures in place, it will be really difficult for us to maintain them.”

The Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park was commissioned on July 4, 2023, by President Akufo-Addo.

The government expects the park to attract one million tourists annually from Ghana and abroad.

The new park now has a presidential library, a refurbished mausoleum, a mini Amphitheatre, a restaurant, a new audiovisual fountain and a gift shop, among others.

The site pays tribute to Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first president and one of its historical political figures.
