Visitors can lounge on rolling lawns and take in the panoramic view of the symbolic Minar-e-Pakistan, the majestic Lahore Fort, the iconic Azadi Interchange and the historic Badshahi Mosque that also shelters the tomb of Allama Iqbal.
Beautiful moving fountains have also been installed with colour lights at Greater Iqbal Park.
In addition, a library, an open air gym and a food court have also been constructed in the park.
