The popular Zoo Garden relaxation spot (former Calabar Zoo) at the heart of the city is now overgrown with weeds.

A visit by CrossRiverWatch to the hitherto most patronized outdoor spot for people having occasions such as weddings, birthdays party among other events has been deserted.

The entire area is now overgrown with weeds, while the small buildings and huts have become home to some street urchins in the metropolis.

Sources informed CrossRiverWatch that the person who was managing the place had complained of not making any profit as against what was being paid out to government.

Another source told us that part of the reasons for the closure of the spot was poor management as well as the numerous biting insects which used to keep guests/customers uncomfortable, but was quick to add that “how much would it hadve taken the management to fumigate the area regularly rather than living such a strategic spot in the heart of Calabar in such a sorry state in spite of the much talked about tourism drive by the Cross River State Government.”
