    I see this pond since almost a year... The water in the pond is polluted with dirt and mud. .. Yes agree that the fountain is new ! Hope this will be maintained on regular basis. Meanwhile let the MUDA take initiative to brighten the whole park with more lights as lot of families and ladies walk there ....

    This is an old pond and bridge with a fountain developed by the forest department lying idle for 20 years. The MLA and MUDA dusted, dressed, and painted it and put up a board showing it as a new project. There is a musical fountain in the Deer park next door developed 5 years back. But because of political tug-of-war, it is getting rusted.
