An amusement park is reportedly going up in the town that Osama Bin Laden was killed.
Provincial minister for tourism, Syed Aqil Shah, revealed that a park will go up in Abbottabad, Pakistan – where he was tracked down and killed.
But Business Insider reports that Shah told APF that "This project has nothing to do with Osama bin Laden.”
The town, which is named after British Major James Abbott, is hoping to boost tourism with the park, which will feature heritage center, artificial waterfalls, zoo, and an adventure sports facility.
Abbott said about the town in a poem, "I adored the place from the first sight / And was happy that my coming here was right."
Sun News reports that Shah also said of the amusement park that it “will be built on 50 acres in the first phase but later will be extended to 500 acres.”
It will cost them three billion rupees, or $30.6 million to finish the park and will be completed in eight months. Construction will start this month or next.
