After 7 years of existence, the Millenium park in Abuja has finally matured into a true recreational park like many others around the world.
On Sundays in particular there is usually a large number of people coming out to make use of the facility, these days you find lots of kids in the play ground, lovers in the lawns, people casually taking walks , lots of music dancing and pickniking.
I was amazed to see loads of roller bladers in the park , renting , selling skates and giving skating classes on the spot for those interested.
The most intriguing thing i noticed though was the popularity of this bottle ring tossing game being played at the entrance to the park, it reminded me of what you would see at a carnival.
