The initial work started back in 2021 with the official stating that the project is a bit delayed due to soil compaction. A process is done to hold the overall structure in a more effective way. “The land was a dumpyard earlier and to make it suitable for developing a park, soil compaction was performed, which took some time. To enhance the quality of the plants, the soil was also loosened, after which the trees were replanted. The park will open soon for the public,” stated Vandana Srivastava, an officer on special duty (OSD), Noida Authority.
As for the decor, the wall is inspired by excerpts from the vedic age. Laser shows will also be part of the park and will be used for entertainment purposes for the public. Around 50,000 plants will be planted in the park and will feature Vedic literature such as coconut, banyan, neem and kalpavriksha. “The park will be divided into seven zones named after the sages of the Vedic age like Kashyap, Bharadvaj, Gautam, Atri, Vasishtha, Vishvamitra and Agastya. Information on the Indian sages and the holy scriptures will be displayed,” added the official.
Apart from that, the amphitheatre, as well as the open gym, will also be part of the theme. This will be used from solar energy. As per the official statement, the park will be used by the public and mostly cater to Sector-74-79 housing societies as well as other localities.
