Of late, there's been a lot of buzz about water bodies, parks and natural reserves being brought back to their former glory. The latest park to join the fray is Nehru Park in Lutyens Delhi, which is all set for one of the biggest makeover it's ever seen. Soon, this park could become your go to spot for a serene walk amidst nature or just to experience something new in the heart of Delhi. Read on to know more about the upcoming change to Nehru Park.

Already a hub of nature amidst the concrete jungle that happens to be the National Capital, the new attractions coming to Nehru Park will blow you away. For starters, the entire park will get a slew of new flora and some avifauna as well. The manmade lake, which is a huge attraction in itself will be fitted with fountains that will put on a mesmerizing sound and light show.

The lake in itself is an 85-foot wide man made structure, which is already charming to say the least. Following the new additions to the park, it will become a hub for amazing musical evenings and fun filled social gatherings. The new additions will include gazebos, bridges over the man made water body and a stage in the middle of the water. This could make Nehru Park host some of the most intriguing shows in the coming days.

Apart from that, the NDMC aims to put a few placards giving information about the new flora that has been planted in the park. Additionally, the lights will be multicoloured which should make for captivating aesthetics in the night.

As for procurement of water for the lake, the authorities have tied up with nearby sewage treatment plants which will clean out water and recycle it for usage in the lake. This has a two fold benefit as the recycled water is being put to good use and no fresh water is being wasted.

We're glad to see that such a prominent park is undergoing a major change. Following the overhaul, we expect Nehru Park to become a major tourist attraction as well as a park for the localites.
