Jalandhar, September 12

With concerted efforts of the district administration, children’s favourite amusement destination Nikku Park has regained its glory after a slew of development works were completed here. In a recent development, the park has started the much-awaited break dance swing and cricket bowling game for the visitors, further giving an impetus to the amusement activities here.

Divulging the details, Deputy Commissioner Ghansmyam Thori said both the new facilities were started at an outlay of Rs 5 lakh adding that several development initiatives were taken up here earlier by incurring Rs 12 lakh. He mentioned that Nikku Park had got a new look as portraits were painted on its walls. Thori said theme based paintings had been carried out in the park, which had further become an attraction for children. He stated that the break dance ride was lying shut due to lack of maintenance while a cricket bowling machine was newly set up in the park and both are functional now.

Spread in 4.5 acres of land, Nikku Park is located at the heart of the city and was in a dilapidated condition due to lack of maintenance as it remained shut due to Covid-19 pandemic for almost a year. The Deputy Commissioner had issued financial assistance worth Rs 12 lakh for this park after taking stock of its condition a few months ago. He reiterated his commitment to restoring the glory of this park.
