The foundation of the park was laid on the occasion of the 2 millionth vehicle roll out from Jamshedpur Plant last year and was dedicated to the residents of the colony.
The park is spread across in about 3.2 acres and fulfils the need of all age groups. The park has a children’s corner with slides and a unique skating rink. Children would love the green ground for sure. For elders it has jogging track of 500m with separate areas for exercise, yoga, meditation and relaxation. The natural gradient of the land has not been altered and infact was used to make it picturesque. Plants with medicinal values have been planted. Trees such as Peepal, Banyan, Jamun etc. have been planted to attract the birds. The beauty of the park is further enhanced by different types of floral plants, 3 fountains and a water-fall which recycles water from the rain water collection area. All in the entire park can be termed as an eco-park for using limited resources.
