The Millennium Park is the largest public park of Abuja
, the capital of Nigeria
and is located in the Maitama district of the city.
The Millennium Park was inaugurated by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom
on the 4th December 2003. It’s located near to the former Presidential Palace close to the nucleus of presidential and administrative buildings of the city.
A river crosses the Park in its main rectilinear axis, dividing it into two parts.
One side on the Park is dedicated to uncontaminated nature. In a system of terraces at different levels are located Nigeria's mountain vegetation, Savanna, Deciduous forest, Rainforest and brushwood as well as greenhouses for butterflies and tropical birds.
