Telangana Forest Minister A Indrakaran Reddy and Labour Minister Ch Malla Reddy today launched two urban forest parks, "Arogya Vanams", at Dammaiguda and Jatayuvu in the Medipally area for people to relax and walk.
The ministers said that the parks had been developed with many facilities, at an estimated cost of Rs 74.42 lakh.
Intended to be lung space areas, these parks were developed by the government for people to enjoy non-polluted and green environment with family members, they said.
"They will become tourist spots with their facilities including walking tracks, yoga sheds and harvesting structures. From Gajiba - a specific point in one of the vanams - the total park area and even the city can be viewed," the ministers said.
They asserted that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was committed to providing green and theme parks for lung space around the city, and that more facilities would be added to the parks including food courts, play areas for children and gyms.
