Abstract

The
Forodhani
Park
in
Stone
Town,
Zanzibar
had
been
neglected
for
many
decades
before
it
was
renovated
in
2008-­‐
2009
in
a
project
funded
by
Aga
Khan
Trust
for
Culture.
The
Forodhani
Park’s
setting
in
a
UNESCO
World
Heritage
Site
made
the
renovation
a
particular
case,
especially
while
still
being
the
host
for
a
lively
and
popular
meeting
place
for
local
people
and
tourists.
The
invested
amount
was
2.8
million
USD,
which
raised
questions
of
the
values
of
the
projects
benefits
and
legacy.
The
previous
maintenance
method
clearly
did
not
work,
leaving
a
challenge
for
the
new
management
team
and
the
fund
raising
setup,
which
is
depending
on
rent
collected
from
businesses
within
Forodhani
Park.
Starting
off
from
common
and
not
so
common
theories
of
valuing
park
areas,
this
thesis
sets
out
to
find
out
what
kind
of
effects
the
renovation
of
Forodhani
Park
has
caused
and
what
kind
of
economic
values
possible
to
attribute
to
these
effects.
By
interviewing
people
around
Zanzibar,
supplementing
with
various
written
material
and
statistics,
an
image
of
the
new
Forodhani
Park
was
formed.
This
image
reveals
that
the
renovated
Forodhani
Park
can
be
viewed
as
something
else
than
a
park,
due
to
the
physical
changes
in
the
renovation
project.
It
also
reveals
trouble
with
the
maintenance
and
management,
but
also
appreciation
and
pride
from
the
people,
most
of
whom
find
the
park
to
be
beautiful.
