The Forest Department in the city of Udaipur is in the process of developing a new park dedicated to children's recreational and adventure activities within the Mewar Biodiversity Park. Tenders for this project have already been issued, and as soon as the code of conduct is finalized, construction will commence, with the aim of completing the park by March. The project is expected to incur an expenditure of Rs 20 lakh, which will cover various activities designed for children aged 5 to 14 years, including slides, swings, and rock climbing.
The upcoming children's park in the Mewar Biodiversity Park will share similarities with the existing Love Kush Vatika Park. Presently, the Mewar Biodiversity Park offers a range of exciting activities, including zip lines, treehouses, and tree walks. This park serves as an educational destination for numerous school children from the city, providing them with valuable insights into the jungle and plant life.
Over an extended period, continuous efforts have been made to introduce new activities aimed at enriching the park's offerings. One noteworthy addition is the recent development of a Butterfly Park within the park premises, and there are plans in progress for its upcoming inauguration. This addition is expected to significantly enhance the park's overall appeal and provide visitors with an engaging educational opportunity.
Due to shifting weather conditions, there has been a noticeable rise in the population of butterflies within the park. Furthermore, to foster eco and adventure tourism, the Nagar Van Udyan (Valley of Flowers) will introduce activities such as sky cycling, wall climbing, and swings reminiscent of those in Bali, Indonesia. Tenders have also been released for this project, with a total cost of Rs 48 Lakh allocated for the implementation of all three adventure activities. The objective is to complete this work by March of the following year.
