Park at Palair reservoir all set for revival


A herculean task awaits the Palair gram panchayat, which has taken up the task of maintenance of the spacious park abutting the scenic surroundings of the Palair Balancing Reservoir in Kusumanchi mandal.

The park which once attracted tourists from far and near has lost its charm over the years, as it lies in total neglect, reports Hindu.

Though the park was well maintained by a group of local youth, some of them trained by the experts from the National Institute of Water Sports, several years ago, the community-based tourism promotion initiative has failed to sustain its tempo and yield the desired results.

The grand plans of the Tourism Department to develop the scenic locales of the balancing reservoir spread in over 1,700 hectares under the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model hit a roadblock due to land related issues. This has left the park being poorly maintained and undeveloped.
