Kofar Gamji also known as Hassan Usman Katsina Park, is the first amusement park built in the heart of the Kaduna metropolis close to Shooting Range New Extension next to the Kaduna Police College and it is the most visited recreation center during celebrations such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Sallah and New Year. The premises which started off as a garden during colonial rule and northern administrations, it has beautiful greenery with several trees, a small mangrove, orchards and small islands with majestic water flowing from the River Kaduna. The park is divided into two by the river with a foot bridge built by Lord Frederick Lugard connecting them together. Until the bridge was constructed there was no way of linking both halves except by canoe.

Kofar Gamji park is a great relaxation zone with , a mini zoo housing animals such as a lion, hyena’s,monkeys, ostriches,tortoise, a children’s playground that is managed by a private company.

In this video I saw the lion that killed one of their care giver and injured my tour guy

Damn... Six hundred!? Why's it so low?

How do they take care of those animals on such meagre admission fees.

Healthy menagerie they've got there though.
