How this Sec 30 park got a second life

Fed up with Noida Authority's apathy, ten residents of Sector 30 took upon themselves to transform a barren patch of land into an Eden garden.

How this Sec 30 park got a second life

What happens when 10 green conscious residents of Sector 30 get together? Well, a park, deserted and dead, comes back to life welcoming residents with all its blooming glory. Not just that, it also bagged the third prize at the recent Noida Flowers Show 2015.

Tired of waiting for Noida Authority to do its bit for the E Block park, these residents took upon themselves to save this park from dying a slow death. "We not only wrote to Horticulture Department several times but also met officials personally to draw their attention towards the dying park. But nothing came out of the assurances except some visits by them," says Ritu Mann, a member of the park maintenance group that was formed in May 2013. 

"You won't believe this now but this park was totally barren just two years ago," said Anup Khosla, co-founder of the park maintenance group. The group members contribute Rs 500 every month and have appointed a gardener for the maintenance. More funds are required, but the Horticulture department is yet to step forward to help.

When City Spidey approached Nathal Singh, Zonal Horticulture Inspector of Noida, his reply was typical. "The repair work will begin once the cost estimate for the work is approved by the higher officials. The complaint from the sector is in my mind and we will do the needful soon,” he said.

Now haven't we heard this before?
