town, west-central Ghana. It is surrounded by the forested Southern Ashanti Uplands. The site was a camping place for elephant hunters in the late 19th century. The British set up a district headquarters there in 1924; and with the construction of the road to Kumasi, Sunyani became commercially important as a clearinghouse for cocoa, kola nuts, and staple foods (plantains, yams, and corn [maize]). There is a sports arena in Coronation Park, and the town also has an airport. Pop. (2000) 61,992.
