Lucknowites will soon be able to enjoy a toy train ride & laser show at Janeshwar Mishra Park!

The park will soon witness a large-scale plantation drive, where a total of 20,000 saplings will be planted.

Claimed to be Asia's largest park, Janeshwar Mishra Park in Lucknow is all set for a revamp soon, with a list of proposed additions. As a part of this, Lucknow Development Authority plans to elevate the amusement quotient of the park through the introduction of a toy train and a laser show. Besides, a large-scale plantation drive will also be witnessed in the upcoming days, where a total of 20,000 saplings will be planted, including 15,000 fruit-bearing trees.

Park to be divided into two parts for smoother administration

Given the large expanse of the park stretched over 376 acres, it will be divided into two parts for smoother administration. Further, a private firm will be deputed with the responsibility of managing the garden, parking lots and food joints. In order to implement the projects, a budget of ₹11.70 crores has been allocated by the executive officials.

Launched for the public in August 2014, the park caters to a range of avian creatures besides being a frequented spot for the city folks for recreational purposes. The park was incepted with an objective to evolve as an ecological hotspot for different varieties of birds, small animals, fishes, amphibians and even insects. Encircling waterbodies, the park is based on the idea of sustainable development to create a link between human beings and nature.

One of the most frequented parks in Lucknow & a hub of activity!

According to the master plan, the park is located in the green belt and it was previously envisioned as a city forest. Now, it has become a spot frequented by tourists and locals alike. The park doesn't just act as a great picnic spot but is also a favourite of health enthusiasts, owing to the great cycling tracks, jogging tracks, open gym it offers. The playing area too has a number of swings for the kids. Assuring a proper layout plan for the massive area of the park, these jogging tracks, cycling tracks and pedestrian paths were constructed in the ratio of 2:3:4. Additionally, all these facilities are free from obstructions enabling senior citizens and the specially-abled to use them with ease.

Amongst the highlights, the 25 feet tall statue visible from all sides of the park attracts a large count of visitors. In addition to this, the pathways intersect through the entire landmark heightening its visual appeal and linking different areas like the cultural hub and the artificial lakes. Further, the walkways are equipped with nearly 400 light poles that have energy-efficient LED bulbs. This beautifies the park without causing over-utilisation of scarce energy resources.
