Getaway to Delhi: Eco Park Opens with Air-Conditioned Rooms, Restaurants and a Pool | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government’s Chhawla-Kanganheri ecotourism park in southwest Delhi, developed as a getaway destination with a rural ambience, is now attracting more visitors. The resort’s resort has recently reopened with air-conditioned rooms, a swimming pool, restaurants, and upcoming attractions include soft adventure sports and rides.
Set on 16 acres, the park was unveiled in 2015 and offers facilities like camping, boating, and soft adventure sports. The Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation project never really took off as planned. While the park remained closed during the third wave of Covid-19 in the winter, DTTDC tried to make the project more attractive to visitors by reopening 20 ACs and cottages furnished with modern amenities unlike the campsites previously offered.
An official said the Kanganheri complex opened earlier this month with rooms, a small restaurant and a swimming pool. “Other facilities such as rides and soft adventures are yet to be provided, he said.
However, Chhawla Eco-park which is part of the resort is closed at the moment. “It ran for about two months, but was closed due to almost no visitors,” the official said. “The idea behind the project is for Delhiites to benefit from nature. Once at the park, it is difficult to imagine that one is in town. We thought people visiting the place would love to stay and soak up the beauty and that is why these facilities were created.
The manager added: “New hiking trails have been created around the resort for visitors and we have also tried to create a rural setting here. Visitors can see farming being done up close, for example. Since the resort is located on the outskirts of the capital and the area is green and serene, the village setting has been recreated to give visitors a rural Delhi feel.
The complex now has a renovated swimming pool, which can also be used by those not staying at the complex for an additional fee. All-terrain vehicle rides are offered at the resort and other soft adventure sports will be added soon, the official said.
To attract more visitors, it was planned to allow themed parties and picnics in the park, although applications for weddings and wedding receptions will not be accepted. The earlier plan to allow a bar on the premises has been put on hold for the time being, sources said.
DTTDC had also toyed with the idea of ​​providing larger-scale canoeing and kayaking facilities at the Najafgarh drain in the future. The official said that once the water in the drain is clean, with water coming from the sewage treatment plants upstream, arrangements can be made for kayaking.
