The Climate Change Park in Portmore, St Catherine, is slated to be rehabilitated.

Local Government and Community Development Minister, Desmond McKenzie, says funds have been allocated in the Government's 2016/17 Estimates of Expenditure, which were tabled in the House of Representatives on April 14, to undertake the project.

He made the announcement during a meeting with representatives of the Portmore Municipal Council, recently.

Established in 2014, the 15-acre property was the designated National Labour Day Project that year.

The park is a joint venture between the Portmore Municipal Council and the city of Hagen in Germany, which were twinned in 2012.

Its development was funded by the German government at a cost of approximately $34.4 million and was one of several projects implemented under the Municipal Climate Partnership Programme.
