There’s a spot for everyone, whether you want to go for a walk, spend time with a loved one, or participate in fun activities.
Jabi Lake and Park
Every Saturday, all roads in Abuja lead to the expansive Jabi Lake and Park, as residents head out to exercise, relax, and have fun at the beautiful location, which features a variety of activities and thrills such as horse riding, aerobics, skating, Taekwondo classes, and much more. The park is a must-see for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities. Canoe rides, speed boat rides, and other water sports are available at the park’s man-made Jabi Lake. It is also a popular fishing spot.
Take a grand tour of Abuja’s largest public and green area park, Millennium Park, which spans 32 hectares. It is situated in the federal capital territory’s Maitama district.
