Kanpurites looking for a dose of good news would be glad to know that one of the best parks in the city, Nishad Park is on it's way to a complete overhaul. This step comes after a long period of neglect because of which this natural abode had lost its charm.
Now, prior to the Ganga Yatra that crosses a major part of Kanpur and more specifically, Nishad Park, this natural hub will undergo some major changes, not just for the yatra but for the future as well.
Nishad Park, one of Kanpur's best tourist destination has been chosen for an overhaul because of the Ganga Yatra that will pass through the town and along the Ganges further up. As part of the overhaul, there are several aspects of the park that will undergo changes.
What changes can you expect at Nishad Park? Well, quite a few actually. For one, the entire marking wall of the park will get a makeover, complete with new paint and murals in a few places. This will add to the visual quality of the marking wall itself.
As for the park itself, it will be Ganga themed, making for better and more impressive visuals. Additionally, the park will also tell us of the origin of the Ganga, it's expansion and how it has aged over the years. This will be accomplished by installing a laser that picturizes the Ganga and a statue of the boatman.
The park will also get looping speakers, which will continuously play music. During the Ganga Yatra, the DM has instructed authorities to play Bhajans and Aartis that will lift up the yatris' spirits. Following that, the speakers will be used to play light music while the general public goes about walking and jogging in the park.
We're excited that Kanpur is finally on the receiving end of some good news. The park is one of our favourite places in town and now that it is undergoing a complete makeover, we can't wait to see how it will improve Kanpur's tourism.
