Location and size
The Municipality covers a total land area of 23.91 km2 and it is located in the North-Eastern part of the Kumasi Metropolis. It shares boundaries with Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to the East, South and West, Kwabre East District to the North-West and EjisuJuabeng Municipal Assembly to the North-East.
The geology of Asokore Mampong municipality is dominated by the Middle Precambrian Rock. The existence of this geological structure boosted the construction industry which has impacted positively on the local economy. However, this activity is currently on a small scale.
Relief and drainage
The municipality lies within the plateau of the South–West physical region which ranges from 250-300 meters above sea level. The topography of the area is undulating, i.e. it is characterized by lowlands and highlands. The Aboabo River, Parko and Wewe streams are the main water bodies weaving through the municipality. However, indiscriminate waste disposal practices have impacted negatively on the drainage system.
Climate & Vegetation
The climate of the municipality falls within the wet sub-equatorial type. The average minimum temperature is about 21.50C and the maximum average temperature is 30.7 0C. The average humidity is about 84.16 percent at 0900 GMT and 60 percent at 1500 GMT. The moderate temperature, humidity and the double maxima rainfall regime (214.3 mm in June and 165.2mm in September) have a direct effect on population growth and the environment.
This has precipitated the influx of people from beyond the municipality and other parts of the country, chiefly because the climatic conditions are not harsh. Predominant species of trees found are Ceiba, Triplochlon, Celtis with Exotic Species. There are other patches of vegetative cover scattered over the peri-urban areas of the municipality.
