Due to concerted efforts of district administration Jalandhar, Children’s favorite amusement destination Nikku Park has regained its glory after a slew of development works were completed here. In a recent development, the park has started the much-awaited break dance swing and cricket bowling game for the visitors, further giving impetus to the amusement activities here.

Divulging the details, Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori said that both the new facilities were started at an outlay of Rs. Five lakh adding that several development initiatives were taken up here earlier by incurring Rs. 12 lakh. He also mentioned that Nikku Park has worn a new look as mesmerizing portraits were painted on its walls.

Thori said that theme based paintings have been carried out in the park, which have further become an attraction point for the children. He stated that the break dance ride was lying shut due to lack of maintenance while a cricket bowling machine was newly set up in the park and both are functional now.

Spread in 4.5 acres of land, Nikku Park is located at the heart of the city and was in dilapidated conditions due to lack of maintenance as it remained shut due to COVID-19 pandemic for almost a year. The Deputy Commissioner had issued financial assistance worth Rs. 12 lakh for this park after taking stock of its condition a few months ago. He reiterated his commitment to restoring the pristine glory of this park at any cost.
