The artificial lake at Chitgar Park is one of the big projects in Tehran which has been designed on the basis of expert aptitude and studies of domestic specialists. Now, after its opening, it provides a new opportunity in the area of tourism in Tehran.

According to Tehran SAMA, Tehran Mayor Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf opened the Persian Gulf Martyrs Lake. Speaking on the occasion, he said: “The large city of Tehran with a population of over 10 million people is in need of opportunities for spending recreational time and for this reason expansion of regional and trans-regional recreational spaces has been put on the agenda of Tehran Municipality. In Chitgar area and in the Persian Gulf Martyrs Lake complex in addition to natural recreational spaces, sports and cultural environments have been provided and meanwhile the complex is effective in creating a pleasant climate in Tehran.”

Ghalibaf added: “The project has been implemented on scientific basis and through conducting research works. The Islamic Republic of Iran in the area of water, water shedding and dam building industry is among famous world countries and on this basis update studies in relation to Chitgar Lake have been conducted by domestic experts. I say this with confidence that this project has a strong, scientific and research backing and will remain a sustainable complex in Tehran for the next 50 years.”

According to the report, the project for construction of an artificial lake in Tehran was raised as an urban law in the Comprehensive Plan in 1970 and was followed in 1976 and 1988 but was later abandoned. Finally in 2007 urban managers decided to implement the project after 40 years in the same geographical location which is now District 22 of Tehran Municipality. After completing the study phase, ground was broken for the project in the month of Bahman 1390 (February 2012). Now after 15 months the first phase of the project has been launched in an area of 123 hectare and its massive recreational complex has been completed.
