Delhi is not a city that is at short of quirky places to see. From the “7 Wonders of the World” park to the “Sulabh Museum of Toilets”, one would say that Delhi is a city with quite a few interesting places. A place that is adding to this list is the new 10-acre park that is made entirely out of scrap. What's even more surprising is the fact that it has been made by DMRC and not a private firm.
What's the update?
In a rather unforeseen move, the DMRC has surprised Delhiites once again. Their latest project also happens to be one of the most quirky developments yet. The park, made entirely made out of scrap material, is one of a kind. Not only is it made out of scrap, it also covers an area of a whopping 10 acres. Sounds like a herculean task, doesn't it?
Well, the DMRC have certainly pulled it off, though. Making use of everything left behind from the construction of so many metro stations, metro routes and tracks themselves, the DMRC have fashioned out everything into something worth seeing.
What can you do at Prakriti park?
Complete with an auditorium, an amphitheatre, meditation alcove, gyms, playgrounds for kids and, wait for it - even a rainforest! Now that's surely a commendable feat. Apart from the unique structures that each of the areas of the park have, it should also gain fame for the varied waste art pieces.
If you are worried about environment preservation, then get this- DMRC has not used even a single scrap of new material and have even recycled all the non-biodegradable material left behind from construction.
Surely, this seems like a really unique place that you guys should go and check out for yourself. The next time you're bored out of your mind and looking for a unique and cool place to visit, head over to Prakriti park.
