Given the rising amount of developments happening in Delhi right now, there’s yet another news! According to NDMC, Lutyens’ Delhi will soon have another Central Park, on the similar lines of Connaught Place.

A detailed plan has been chalked out to revamp a 5-acre plot between Bangla Sahib Gurdwara and Shivaji Stadium metro station into a ‘Green Island’ which means that this venture will give us more space to relax! This will also provide us with a greener area in the capital and the authorities will demolish concrete structures around, too.

This will declutter the area, which presently houses nurseries, a park, traffic training centre, office of Deputy Commissioner of Police and a night shelter, which has about 150 people! Under this occurrence, the area will be converted into a recreational facility and the night shelter will be relocated.

According to TOI, NDMC’s outgoing chairman Naresh Kumar stated, “The place will be developed like Central Park with provisions for open amphitheater, children’s playing area, sitting area and walkway. Like Connaught Place, some event can also be organised here, if required. A historical fountain located in the middle of the land will be restored and given an aesthetic look using colourful lights and plants. Landscaping will be done in about 3 acres of area.”

NDMC will finalise a design in consultation with Delhi Urban Art Commission and this ‘green island’ will provide for another breathable space in this city. The final nod is yet to come from DUAC and honestly, we’re eagerly waiting for this ‘happiness area’ to become functional.
