  • | Thursday | 16th November, 2023

NOIDA: The Noida Authority has decided to redesign the butterfly dome in Sector 62 D Park, the citys largest and oldest park. The redesigning will be done after seeking advice from entomologists. Additionally, the chambers located in the park will be developed into an exhibition hall. Instructions have been given to reactivate the water fountain in the park, considering a maintenance-free design, and to select an agency for boating in the water body situated within the park, along with releasing big and attractive fish into the water body.Moreover, instructions have been given to install equipment for promoting callisthenics in the open gym located in the park, renovate the parks main gate, and construct a selfie point within the premises.The D Park, built over a decade ago for Rs 7.5 crore, is spread over 18 acres. The butterfly dome, created in 2013 to function as a butterfly conservatory, has suffered from a lack of proper maintenance. A resident of the sector, PR Chandna, who has been pursuing the matter with the Noida Authority for the past 6-7 years, expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of concrete conservation plans. The Japanese-style butterfly dome was installed with the intent to conserve different varieties of butterflies, but so far it has not succeeded in its purpose. The dome made of iron has badly corroded, and the entire structure is in pitiable condition, he added. Recently, CEO Lokesh M, accompanied by senior horticulture department officials, inspected the park and found that the maintenance work had gone for a toss with broken footpath tiles and overgrown grass and trees. Consequently, he issued directives to revamp the park, instructing that the salaries of the concerned staff and officials be withheld until the conditions were rectified. Officials said a consultant company of the Noida Authority has already presented plans for the parks redevelopment. Besides, the horticulture department has been tasked with installing an aeration system in the water body of the Sector-54 wetland and ensuring a high level of tree plantation around the area.
