Lawrence Gardens (Bagh-e-Jinnah)

The park surrounds a British building which houses the Jinnah Library. Sir John Lawrence was the first lieutenant governor and the gardens have a very famous cricket ground. A garden restoration programme was begun in 2002. It was originally a botanical garden modelled on Kew Gardens in London.
