GHMC's (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) urban bio-diversity wing has been emphasizing transforming open and abandoned spaces in Hyderabad into eco-parks to provide a better green environment for people. GHMC, as a part of this, has undertaken plantation, provided lighting, added benches, and undertaken overall renovation at Green Belt Park on Road No 12, Banjara Hills. This was a hidden space with lush greenery and tall trees for a long time; however, later, it had become a place for dumping the trash.
The GHMC officials say that it took almost two months to transform this hidden open space into an eco-park. The team informs that they have planted around 4,000 trees sprawling over two acres in this park. Most of the trees are shade and ornamental plants.
Recently Khairatabad Zone developed Eco-Eleven Park in an open space on Road No 11, Banjara Hills, which was prone to illegal activities and dumping previously. This was restored and developed with 11 prominent species of plants, unique benches, good lighting, and artistic painting. The officials also added that in 2020 around 400 open spaces had been transformed into eco-parks.
