Delhi Metro park with art works created out of junk inaugurated

Delhi Metro has put to use huge amount of junk, mainly construction waste, to create art installations that have been displayed in a park, which was inaugurated on Tuesday.

Located in east Delhi’s Shastri Park, ‘Prakriti – Metro Park’, described as “one of a kind”, was inaugurated by National Green Tribunal Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar in the presence of DMRC chief Mangu Singh.

Spread over an area of over 10 acres, the park has a host of recreational facilities and a specially designed “rain forest” apart from the art installations.

“Artists from across the country have come together to create these beautiful installations, all of which carry pertinent messages on a range of issues. Almost one third of the materials used in the park are salvaged materials,” a Delhi Metro statement said.

“Utilisation of top soil from various underground station sites, plantation of nature, medicinal and pollution absorbing plants, bird attracting plant species and creation of a ‘Rain forest’ are some of the other attractions,” it said.
