Geese Park, located along the castle drive leading to the Osu Castle in Accra, burial place of President John Evans Atta Mills, is near completion.

The tomb, cement works and lighting system are expected to be completed by the close of Wednesday, August 8.

The tomb, which has been tiled, was designed by the Chinese State HL Construction.

Alhaji Baaba Agbah, Caretaker of the Park, expressed satisfaction at the rate at which work there was ongoing.

He told the Ghana News Agency that the Park, a beautiful place developed by Lieutenant Colonel Larry Gbevlo-Lartey, National Security Coordinator, was inhabited by geese, peacocks, pigeons, doves and ducks.

Alhaji Agbah said a section of the Park was to be used as the burial ground due to its beautiful nature and because of its potential as a tourist site.

He said the birds live in a clean environment with a well maintained big pond and under tight security.

“The National Security Coordinator did not intend to make this place a tourist site, but rather to serve as a scene or view for those who ply the road,” Alhaji Agbah said.

Security at the Park is tight to prevent intruders from entering the area, which has been fenced.
