Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama last night commended the efforts of all those involved in the project to bring the Albert Park Pavilion & Grounds up to international standards.

This new pavilion finally gives us a structure worthy of this historic and wonderful place, a building that is in keeping with its surroundings and also provides us with the ability to accommodate 1000 people under cover and in comfort.

We have also upgraded the notoriously difficult surface of the park itself, fixed its drainage problems and covered it with the latest turf. It is now up to international standards.

To all those involved in the project – the Ministry of Local Government, the Suva City Council, the project manager, architects, engineers, turf specialists and the Yanjian Group (Fiji) that constructed the Pavilion – vinaka vakalevu. This is yet another project that has enhanced our capital and made us proud.
