West End Park, the entertainment and shopping hub close to the Industrial Area has been renamed Asian Town, becoming the first such facility in the country dedicated to expatriate workers.

The sprawling complex attracts huge number of expatriate labourers, especially during weekends, as well as families. It has a big shopping centre, cinema halls, cricket stadium, an amphi-theatre, auditoriums and eateries.

A spokesman of Ibin Ajayan Projects, that runs the facility since December last year, said the name change was intended to reflect the actual purpose of the facility. He said Asian Town was the original name suggested by the authorities for the facility, which has been designed as an affordable shopping and entertainment hub for expatriate workers.

With a new name and logo, visitors can also expect more activities, with many new facilities to go operational very soon. A new shopping centre — Plaza Mall — will become functional this month, with a number shops offering a wide range of products.

There are four cinemas in the complex of which two are currently operating. A third one will open next week and the fourth is also expected to be ready very soon. “They are the cheapest cinemas in the city, showing a wide range of films catering to Asian expatriates.
