Spread across 376 acres of land Janeshwar Mishra Park is worth Rs. 300 crore and attracts a huge number of visitors on a daily basis. It comprises of a man-made lake, kids play area, open air gym, a tank, landscapes, food court, along with a real-life fighter jet apart from other recreational areas. It was inaugurated by Akhilesh Yadav in August 2014 and is often claimed to be his ‘dream project’. The young CM wanted to build this to meet the standards of London’s famous Hyde Park and we think he has done a pretty good job.
But there is more!!
The newest attraction at the Janeshwar Mishra Park is the Venetian Gondola. Gondola is a flat based rowing boat which gained a lot of popularity in India, thanks to Bollywood. But now to experience it in real life, Lucknow residents won’t have to travel very far. These boats, specially imported from China, were inaugurated with UPCM Akhilesh Yadav, his wife, Dimple Yadav, and children taking the first ride on 4th December 2016. The chief minister said, “Gondola boats will be a major attraction at the park, which has turned into a major tourist destination of late.”
Lucknow Development Authority announced that the 20-minute round will cost the public Rs. 50 which was earlier fixed at Rs. 100. But safety of people has been given utmost importance by Akhilesh Yadav. The visitors who want to enjoy boating will need to put on special life jackets during the boat ride. The park administration has arranged for 20 lifeguards who will be available for quick help, in case of an accident.
There are 10 gondolas at present which have cost the government Rs. 2.50 crore. Seeing the response this number can be increased.
Social Samajwadi can’t wait to take a Gondola ride. What about you?
