Delhiites, there’s absolutely nothing this city can’t offer! If you’re looking for a sprawling area full of flowers, you don’t have to go far. Delhi has now got its own Rose Garden in Dwarka. With about 90 varieties of roses, specially brought in from Kolkata, the garden is now open to the public. Dwarka- Lieutenant Governor, Anil Baijal, inaugurated the Van Mahotsav and the Rose Garden developed by the Delhi Development Authority on the 5th of August and we couldn’t be more excited. Here is everything you need to know about it!
What is the garden all about?
DDA has developed an 11.5 acres of green area in Sector-16C, Dwarka for Rose Garden, Fruit Garden and Herbal Garden. The Rose Garden spreads over an area of 6.5 acres with 90 different varieties of roses. The green stretch with its breathtaking views is certainly a sight that you won’t be able to get your eyes off of. So get your cameras out and head over to the Rose garden and start clicking ASAP!
The Purpose Behind This Initiative
The DDA is determined to cover more area of Delhi as Green Carpet by planting 4 lakh indigenous species this year keeping in view its sustainable environment. As a new initiative, they have also associated the children of various Delhi schools of Class VI and above to plant and adopt a tree and to place name plaques on the adopted tree to inculcate the sense of belongingness. Isn’t that a great initiative!
We all know that Delhi has time and again been tagged as a city with soaring pollution levels. But these drives are revamping the city with such eco-friendly makeovers! So by the end of 2019, we’re hoping to see more of these green initiatives and hopefully, other cities will be following suit soon.
