Civic body transforms local park into recreational hub
Mangal Eri project on revival mode
Mangal Eri Park (also known as Arignar Anna Park), which is located at Vellar Street in Mogappair West, will be desilted, at a revised cost of 65 lakh, according to Zone-7 (Ambattur) officials of Greater Chennai Corporation.
A few years ago, Corporation Officials had proposed to develop the facility as a “Model park” at a cost of 1.25 crore adding many features such as yoga and meditation centre, a pebble pathway and a clock tower. Due to objections from the residents, the project and maintenance was dropped entirely.
On an average more than 2000 visitors from near by areas visit the park everyday.
