Ramniwas Bagh, situated in the heart of the city, is expected to get a facelift soon. Following directions of the empowered committee constituted to develop the Pink city a world-class one, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has drawn a proposal to develop a vacant land in the garden unattended since years.

As ample of land is available in the Bagh, many special features have been designed to give it a facelift. Additional chief engineer V S Sunda said, “Initial planning has been completed and presented before of the urban development and housing minister Shanti Dhariwal. A meeting between the empowered committee and the minister on the matter will be scheduled soon.”

JDA officials informed that like in the Central Park, a clay track has been proposed in Sawan Bahdo park falling inside the garden for visitors. At present, people who come for morning and evening walks have to do so on the roads making it unsafe. There will also be an added facility for the Walled City residents.

A small amusement park for children has also been proposed for the residents. “At the entry point from JLN Marg, there was an amusement park earlier. However, that area was wasted after it was closed many years ago,” a JDA official said. Similarly, as the vacant land on MI Road is inviting drunkards, a proposal has been drawn to develop a small garden in that area too.

For the safety of pedestrians near the zoo, situated inside the park, speed table has been proposed in the area. “The speed table concept is new to the city. As the zoo is separated by the road, it will provide a safe passage for the pedestrians,” the official added.

Officials informed that in phase-II of development for the park, a mini train is also proposed which can ferry residents from parking to Albert Hall museum to the amusement park . “A similar kind of train is running in Nehru Garden. Tracks will not be laid for this train and it will have wheels which can move on road. The proposal was added after receiving suggestions from the empowered committee,” the official said.

Meanwhile, the JDA has also completed its planning to develop Woodland Park in a phase manner in the Mansarovar area. The first phase will be constructed on around 32 bigah land.

As the land of the park is situated in the nullah, an official claimed that work for retreatment of water to avoid foul smell has been started. “The Malviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT) will be appointed as consultant for the project. All earlier problems including for land have been resolved,” he added.
