At a time when the world battles climate change and plastic pollution, there’s a dire need to increase forests and parks. Instead of opening oxygen bars, if we were to start planting more trees and preserving forests, our future generations would be in safe hands. Hyderabad, ‘The City of Nizams’, taking this a step forward, will soon welcome a lush green oxygen park under the LB Nagar flyover. This spacious park will allow visitors to take a leisure stroll and breathe in fresh oxygen to rejuvenate themselves.
Oxygen Park With 34,329 Plants To Come Up In Hyderabad
Open space underneath Hyderabad’s LB Nagar flyover will soon be transformed into an oxygen park. It will be developed at a budget of ₹50 lakhs according to a GHMC official. Visitors can witness 34,329 plants of 38 different varieties planted in this park. The whole area will also have a green fence cobbled with creepers that will make the oxygen park simply irresistible for walkers and joggers. Officials also revealed to news agencies that there will be a 390-m open space with 784 m of walking track and sitting facility.
