The Addis Ababa City Administration, in cooperation with HoA-REC/N wants to transform the Repi Solid Waste Disposal site into a public city park. This site of the city can be used for social-cultural aspects and also economical, ecological an sustainability aspects. In the “green heart” of the park will be a museum and recreation area. The main vegetation theme of the park is “Savannah” with the typical African Acacia trees. And the natural flow of the water streams.
The main idea for the park-program and functions is to offer social and cultural use of the park (gathering, meeting, identity etc) and also an economic effect for new employment (maintenance, security, staff & employees for museum, catering, recycling centre, nursery, etc). Besides that the park program creates opportunities for education, like sustainability, technical aspects, ecology an environmental issues. Therefore the functions as Science-museum, nursery, power generation centre and recycling centre are all integrated and related to each other in the concept and design of the park!
