Velayat Grand Park, a Gift Presented by the Supreme Leader to the Noble Citizens of Southern Tehran

Promotion of religious-cultural standards of life in southern Tehran and comprehensive development of this
area were the key concepts inherent in implementation of the first phase of Velayat Grant Park. The first phase predominantly focused on promotion of cultural capabilities in southern Tehran. This is because the citizens of southern Tehran had either no or limited access to welfare, educational and cultural facilities. Therefore, they had little participation in cultural and recreational programs. To promote their welfare and educational and recreational wellbeing, construction of Velayat Grand Park was put on the agenda of the Municipality of Tehran. In designing the park, efforts were made to bring the elements into conformity with the culture and even nomenclature of the park. The municipality tried its best to foster the nexus between the concept of culture and urban management in construction of the park. Hence, the municipality had to identify the cultural, welfare and recreational problems in the areas surrounding the park and then prepare the necessary plans to reduce part of the problems by the facilities it had planned to create in the park. It should be borne in mind that inauguration of the first phase of the park, increased the green space per capita of the District 19 of Tehran Municipality 2.7 meters.
