Gurugram To Get ‘Leopard Park’ On Aravalli Stretch; Till then, Visit These 4 Parks On This Range

Gurugram has recently shared some interesting information about a new project named ‘Leopard Park’ and its significance as well.

To put an end to the wildlife coming out of forests and cause fear and tragedy for humans, the project has been initiated. To know more details about this Gurugram project, read on.

The plan is to establish a new park for the big cats on a 15 km jungle stretch. It is going to be built at the Behrampur village, according to a report by The Times of India. This falls under the part of a conservation project for the Aravalis’s 15 km stretch. It is set to be established from the Bandhwari landfill to the Damdama Lake. Different departments such as the forest department, district administration, GMDA, and MCG are coming together to work on this innovative project. GMDA is the funding source behind it, according to a report by LiveMint.

The primary reason behind taking the decision to work on a 15 km stretch of the Aravallis and create a safe space, a leopard park, for the big cats is to control the number of unfortunate scenarios that took place in the last years. There have been some horrible cases between leopards and human beings. Conserving the lives of the big cats and making a safe home for them is a major priority right now.

The inspiration behind the upcoming project of Leopard Park in Gurugram is the famous Jhalana Leopard Safari Park of Jaipur. The development process will be quite similar to Rajasthan’s Jhalana Leopard Safari Park. There are positive expectations from this new project in Gurugram. It looks like it can be the answer to all kinds of problems of leopards coming out of the wilderness and roaming in the concrete city.

In a conversation with the TOI, a senior official of GMDA also shared that there are plans to install an interpretation centre and a watch tower as well.
