Albert Park to close
The Suva City Council (SCC) is thinking of closing Albert Park for a year to upgrade it. The park would be closed after the Hibiscus Carnival to be held from 12 to 30 August 2006, for a major upgrade. The Council has given its facilities at Albert Park, Sukuna Park and the Civic Auditorium for use during the carnival. Money raised from the carnival would go to cleaning and beautifying the city. This is the 50th year of the Hibiscus Festival.
