A city like Indore, one that is developing at a phenomenal rate, is increasingly becoming a concrete jungle. With tall buildings revamping the skyline of the city, it really is a marvel how nature still manages to find a way to thrive and survive in such an environment. To help the environmental cause, authorities have stated that they aim to set up an oxygen park. Read on to know more about the upcoming Oxygen Park in Indore.
According to reports from Times of India, a plantation drive was carried out in a village near Indore on Monday and this will serve as the stepping stone for the aforementioned oxygen parks. Basically, the oxygen parks will help keep Indore pollution free and as eco friendly as possible in the age where the city is shifting to a more urbanized town.
As for the plantation drive, some officials said that they have identified a few areas where it would be best to plant saplings. Additionally, the initial goal is to sow at least 5,000 saplings. In the near future, these will grow into massive deciduous trees that will provide a much-needed green cover in a few parts of the city.
Apart from just planting the 5,000 saplings in areas such as Sanwadiya, Chander, Chittoda and Harsola, the main city will also get up to 50,000 new trees along the Indore Dewas bypass road. This will ensure that even when global warming and such issues are at their peak, Indore will be able to sustain itself. In addition to that, this is also another essential move towards caring for the environment and giving something back to nature.
Though Indore already holds the mantle of the cleanest city, these developments could also ensure a place for the city in terms of atmospheric cleanliness and ease of breathability.
