Noida: The work of the park in Sector 80 has finally picked some pace after several follow-ups by the residents of Gaur Sportswood, Sector 79. The residents are happy with the recent development work carried in the park. They had been demanding the conversion of a four-acre vacant plot of land adjacent to their housing society into a park, for a long time. According to the residents, till now, there was no park for them in the area.
Noida Authority had started development work on the park on November 17, 2021. Initial work involved removing the construction waste from the plot of land, followed by the planting of some saplings. On December 8, 2021, as residents visited the plot of land designated for the park, they noticed that the saplings planted on the instructions of the authority were already dead. Sanwarjeet Singh, a resident of Gaur Sportswood, took this matter to the ACEO of Noida Authority. Following this, the Authority has now acted in the matter and development work started in the right earnest. Now finally, the park is getting into shape. Jogging track has been developed, new saplings have been planted and a submersible pump has also been installed in the park for watering the plants and green belt.
Talking about the development of the park, RK Sharma, Project Engineer, Noida Authority, says, “We have developed mud jogging tracks for residents which most people prefer. If need be we can construct tiled tracks too. But our target as of now is to complete the mud jogging track first. We are planting saplings here which will help beautify the whole area."

Indu Prakash Singh, Officer on Special Duty, Noida Authority, says, “All this work is getting done by the C&D waste plant company, which is adjacent to the park. The Authority has not spent any money from its side. We are planning to do some more development like the installation of swings in the park area. Our initial target was to control the dust pollution, for which we are developing this green belt”.
