At a distance of 15-km from the main city, the peaceful park stands in the Vidhyanagar region. Being the latest addition to the sprawling landmarks of Jaipur, this park is all set to shine like a jewel in the ornamented heritage of the city.

As per reports, the Jaipur Development Commissioner stated that the firms are invited to send an 'Expression of Interest' for taking up the works related to the functioning and preservation of the park. Once COVID restrictions are relaxed completely, the captivating park would be opened for the public.

It has been ensured that the ecology and topography of the area were not disturbed while renovating it. The reports suggest that one may find the reflections of the Thar desert in this park, being opened on the edges of the city. A total of 18 indigenous species have been planted here and the park would further display trees which have been sourced from Barmer, Sirohi, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Chittorgarh and Banswara. In addition to the plant varieties, the sand spread over the 320 acres of parkland here has been sourced from Jaisalmer.
