The Crushed Rock is an abandoned quarry in Mpapae, Abuja. The quarry was opened in 1977, just a year after the decision to relocate Nigeria’s capital to Abuja from Lagos. During the 1980s, the quarry provided much of the stones for construction of the new city. It has been abandoned since until 2010. The quarry and quarry lake are now popular tourist locations. The quarry which is open to investors for development, is in the city’s neighborhood of Mpapae (which means rock in the gbayi language). The lake and high cliffs make it an attractive hiking location
