A Parthenium Park on the anvil?

November 2, 2017

Sir,

It’s very disappointing to see such a beautiful stretch of 1.5 km Krishnaraja Boulevard being neglected and made as a Parthenium Park. The road houses many heritage buildings like Zilla Panchayat, Court Complex, Oriental Research Institute, Ursu Boarding School and Maharaja’s College.

The entire median was well- maintained with lush green lawn and ornamental plants for a few years with metal barricade all around but neglected recently for reasons better known to the powers that be.

I was actually shocked to read one of the articles in som where it said the MCC had plans of paving the median with concrete pavements.

I request the authorities concerned to look into it and convert it into a beautiful Boulevard to suit its name and maintain it well which in turn can enhance the beauty of the heritage structures on the lane.
