Here’s news... and good one. Dedicated play areas and flower parks will adorn Dwarka in 2019, said DDA Chief Engineer, RK Singh, in his speech to a gathering at Sector 11 DDA park today.
The occasion? Swachhata Awareness Campaign by the DDA.
The parks have already been identified and work is to start soon.
“We have identified 15 parks in different sectors so far. After we are successful in this first attempt, we will go for more parks. We are also developing a rose and a bougainvillea garden in Dwarka. Work in these two parks should be completed in a month’s time,” confirmed the Chief Engineer.
Singh said community participation was being promoted by the DDA in the development of the city and a dedicated team has been working with the RWAs in maintaining the footpaths and repairing of the roads. He added that all the DDA parks would have open-air gyms.
The DDA has about 95 parks across Dwarka — of which, 20 have open air gyms.
Representatives of Parmarthi, a social organisation working on cleaning of footpaths and roads of Dwarka, were also present at the venue.
To mark the occasion, children from schools and NGOs and societies in the area participated in various competitions like easy writing, painting and street plays. They displayed their creativity on the subject of cleanliness and environment. Winners were given prizes and certificates by the DDA through the RWAs, social activists and experts of different fields.
