The Lagos State Government and the Management of the Centre have announced that the Canopy Walkway will be reopened for public use with effect from Friday, 29th March 2024, following the completion of extensive routine maintenance works.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. ldris Aregbe confirmed this on Friday during a visit to the Centre in Lekki alongside some officials of the Ministry.

Mr Aregbe said that he was happy to see that all repairs and renovations on the facility, including the Walkway, have been
completed and would be accessible for tourism during the Easter celebration.

The Special Adviser appreciated Lagosians and tourists across the world for their patience during the thorough maintenance works carried out at the Centre in Lekki.

The Director-General of the Centre, Prof Mathew Onoja also appreciated the State Government for its intervention following the viral video, which first circulated in December as well as the swift response and efforts towards making the repairs and renovations seamless.

He noted that the Centre being a major tourism asset in Lagos State has played host to tourists from all over the world as it offers a serene environment for nature tourism and also boasts of the longest
canopy walkway in Africa.

Recall that the facility has been undergoing routine maintenance since January following apprehensions arising from the damaged section of the Canopy Walkway, which had been repaired before the viral
video was posted on social media platforms.
