Akshay Mohanty Park near Kanika Square was inaugurated on Monday

Cuttack:21/11/17; The renovated and developed Akshay Mohanty Park near Kanika Square was inaugurated on Monday.

The park, which was given the Rs 40-lakh facelift by Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC), also has a path around for walkers and a recreation zone for children.

Barabati Cuttack MLA Debashis Samantaray, who inaugurated it, praised the “good quality” work.

The park, which first came up in 2004, was named after legendary singer Akshay Mohanty. But it fell into disrepair afterwards. The civic body planned to revive it in June last year and roped in a private consultancy firm. Chairman of the CMC’s standing committee for culture and recreation A. Sridevi said the park had to be reconstructed because a large portion of it had been damaged during the construction of the main storm water channel No. 1 under the Japan International Co-operation Agency-funded integrated sanitation project in the city. The civic body’s focus was to revive the park and improve it with special emphasis on installation of play equipment for children, seating and lighting arrangements, drinking water, landscaping and creation of a walking track.
