A park in my neighborhood.There are few parks in our area and though some of them are maintained by local municipal authorities but there are others which still require care and maintenance. Some of these parks are developed as gardens while some are kept as playground for children.
One such park, in my neighborhood, was big enough but was not in a good condition and required a lot of maintenance. It was almost a neglected place and people used to throw even garbage there.
Some of the people staying in housing societies near this park took an initiative of cleaning it voluntarily and after about one year time it is full of flowers along its periphery along with the already existing old tree etc.
The local administration was also impressed by this great action of these volunteers and provided a walking footpath around the park and some benches to sit.
Mean while these volunteers have continued their work and this park has become a good place for the walkers and children playing sports.
Most of these volunteers are retired people and have really brought out a remarkable improvement in the park right from cleanliness to large scale plantation and designing flower beds along the boundary of the park.
I am also using that park for my walks and was so much impressed by these volunteers that I thought to share this story with my fellow ISCians.
