A new park of the capital city

On the eve of the nationwide celebrations of the 30th anniversary of our sacred independence, dozens of large new buildings, industrial, social and cultural facilities, are being commissioned in the capital city and throughout the country. So, in Ashgabat, in a special solemn atmosphere, the opening of a new park and four underground passages at the intersection of Atamurat Niyazov Avenue and Khoja Ahmad Yasavi Street took place. It is generally accepted that parks are the “lungs” of cities that provide clean air, while green spaces themselves create a wonderful atmosphere for relaxation and useful leisure. The new park is named Lachyn. And this is not accidental: after all, the green zone is located between the airport and a new hotel Garagum, where everything is intended for warmly welcoming the guests of our hospitable capital city.

It should be no­ted that it was de­mocracy that de­ter­mi­ned the furt­her cour­se of the sta­te at the first sta­ges of its sovereign develop­ment. The­re­fo­re, the work to strengt­hen and imp­rove the po­li­tical and le­gal fra­me­works of our sta­te, the Ba­sic Law of which de­fi­nes de­mocra­tic develop­ment as the ini­tial vector of the path of in­de­pen­dence, was car­ried out in coor­di­na­tion with the ful­fil­ment of such a ba­sic task as the for­ma­tion of an accep­tab­le foun­da­tion for the de­mocra­tic princip­les of the na­tio­nal society.
